Brief introduction of ebooks
Aya: Life in Yop City


""Aya "is an irresistible comedy, a couple of love stories and a tale for becoming African. It's essential reading." --Joann Sfar, cartoonist of "The Rabbi's Cat " Ivory Coast, 1978. It's a golden time, and the nation, too--an oasis of affluence and stability in West Africa--seems fueled by something wondrous. "Aya" is loosely based upon Marguerite Abouet's youth in Yop City. It is the story of the studious and clear-sighted nineteen-year-old Aya, her easygoing friends Adjoua and Bintou, and their meddling relatives and neighbors. It's a wryly funny, breezy account of the simple pleasures and private troubles of everyday life in Yop City. Clement Oubrerie's warm colors and energetic, playful line connect expressively with Marguerite Abouet's vibrant writing. This reworked edition offers readers the chance to immerse themselves in Abouet's Yop City, bringing together the first three volumes of the series in Book One. Drawn & Quarterly will release volumes four through six of the original French series (as yet unpublished in English) in Book Two. "Aya" is the winner of the Best First Album award at the Angouleme International Comics Festival, the Children's Africana Book Award, and the Glyph Award; was nominated for the Quill Award, the YALSA's Great Graphic Novels list, and the Eisner Award; and was included on "best of" lists from "The Washington Post," "Booklist," "Publishers Weekly," and "School Library Journal."
