Item Details

He lives day to day and hand to mouth, this shambling lug of a man, wrestling with his demons, picking up work where he can, and drinking himself into oblivion. Until one day his palms begin to bleed... These newfound stigmata lose him his job, and he ends up as part of a traveling carnival, where he even finds love. But his past catches up with him - violently so. Has he lost his last chance at redemption? This stunning graphic novel, executed in a mad, expressionistic swirl of black lines, is the result of a unique collaboration between the preeminent Italian cartoonist/graphist Lorenzo Mattotti (Fires, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde) and the award-winning Italian screenwriter Claudio Piersanti.

From Library Staff

Although this list is titled 'The Beautiful Words,' I had to include this sumptuous graphic novel from Mattotti and writer Claudio Piersanti. The neo-realist story of a struggling drunk who exhibits stigmata wounds, looks for love, and joins a carnival. Highly recommended.
