Named one of the year's 20 Essential Graphic Novels by ACBD (the French Association of Comics Critics)!

"Do you love to be unsettled and shaken up by a book? Then you'll love Renée… the artist's sleek line wells up into the middle of the pure white page, unbound by boxes or balloons, and leaves no one - neither character nor reader - unstained." Le Monde

"With detailed hatching reminiscent of Hieronymus Bosch, Ludovic Debeurme crafts fantastical and poignant scenes, exploring the ordinary monstrosity of man and his anxieties… Debeurme has invented a unique poetry here, with intelligence and grace." Les InRocks

"With tremendous graphic freedom, Debeurme depicts people who are trapped… wrapped up in the mystery of their internal drama." Livres Hebdo

"Renée's triple-voiced narrative is beautifully constructed, and proves Debeurme's enduring talent for breaking the traditional boundaries of comics. Simply excellent." Citrouille

"A very dark book that brilliantly depicts human misery. Many will not hesitate to rank it beside the American masters Charles Burns and Daniel Clowes." La République

The acclaimed French cartoonist Ludovic Debeurme returns with the devastating follow-up to his prize-winning graphic novel Lucille. While Lucille moves back in with her mother and Arthur serves time in prison for murder, directionless young Renée becomes obsessed with a married jazz musician twice her age. Balancing the grotesque and the graceful, Debeurme's haunting border-less panels follow these three lost souls between dreams and reality, twining their stories together into a poignant and universal search for redemption. – A deluxe 564-page graphic novel with French flaps.
