9780224090360: Vignettes of Ystov

A poetic and poignant graphic novel, where the washed-out and lonely urban landscape of the fictional city of Ystov provides the setting for a series of remarkable stories

Welcome to Ystov, a bleak but whimsical city. Readers are invited to zoom in and out, through panoramas of industry and market squares, to witness the varied lives of its curious inhabitants—lives of absurdities, restraints, and small triumphs. Meet the poet Eugene Tusk, stumbling upon the old haunts of the Strombold Collective, his defunct poetry society. Or the property agent Yosef Kavar—clearing the apartment of a recently deceased janitor, and discovering a homemade museum dedicated to a lifetime's collection of dustpan detritus. What about this pair of scientists—fed up with astrophysics and out to disprove coincidences as a phenomenon? And here are two men meeting to discuss the fate of an old schoolfriend, piecing together their memories of him, searching for clues that might have led to his sudden arrest for "nose-crimes." Beautifully drawn, and written with a Chekhovian clarity and concision, this series of miniature masterpieces marks the arrival of one of the most inventive new talents in comics.

About the Author:

William Goldsmith is a writer and illustrator.

From Booklist:

The town of Ystov is portrayed in both image and language as a surprisingly pleasant and poetic assortment of inhabitants, landscapes, and wonders. In the titular model, Goldsmith plays with the alphabet’s shape and word forms as well as faces and postures that telegraph character traits but also plot devices. The images—combining gray ink with primary-hued washes—are reminiscent of the Russian-influenced picture books popular in the early 1960s in the Western world. However, in Ystov, neither repression nor mindless behaviors appear: instead we find scientists who are tired of astrophysics so turn to the study of coincidences, “cyclical furniture migrations” that offer real insight as well as slapstick physical humor, and the suspense that occurs when one tries to collect a mystery book where no one answers the door. Like a repertory film, the cast members here appear in singular vignettes that ultimately create a whole. A fine addition where good humor and fine arts are appreciated. --Francisca Goldsmith
