Winner of: Gourmand Magazine Best US wine book translation Slate Cartoonist Studio Award nominee A graphic novel that explores the nature of one’s vocation, this book offers a look at the daily devotion to craft in two dissimilar professions. Étienne Davodeau is a comic artist—he doesn’t know much about the world of winemaking. Richard Leroy is a winemaker—he’s rarely even read comics. But filled with good will and curiosity, the two men exchange professions, and Étienne goes to work in Richard’s vineyards and cellar, while Richard, in return, leaps into the world of comics. Providing a true-life representation of how both professions work, this insightful book investigates two fascinating fields, exploring each man’s motivations and ultimately revealing that their endeavors and aspirations are not much different.

What a genius he was.”—Elizabeth McCracken “Our most poetic American short-story writer since Hemingway.”—George Saunders “Prose of amazing power and stylishness.”—Philip Roth “When Denis Johnson is justly praised for his voice, I always think, just the one? He has an eerie symphony at his command.”—Karen Russell “His prose tiptoes a tightrope between peace and calamity.”—Anthony Doerr “His lonely spaces and stunned lives have a hair-trigger fascination that is American to the core.”—Don DeLillo “Denis Johnson was and is, without question, significant and great.”—Michael Cunningham

A Taste of Chlorine
A teenage boy suffering from curvature of the spine begins swimming every week at the local pool, at the repeated request of his chiropractor. In the interior and echoing world of the swimming pool, surrounded by anonymous bodies and in between lengths, he becomes acquainted with a girl who agrees to give him pointers on his poor technique. It is the start of a tentative friendship, one that exists only in the water, every Wednesday; a friendship made up of touches, gestures and shared silences more than conversation. As their relationship develops, the boy's need for the girl grows, until the pool becomes for him a place freighted with expectancy and longing. One day, she mouths a message underwater - but what could it mean? Chlorine is an intimate and evocative work, revealing in simple yet beautifully-drawn and coloured panels an extraordinary world. With it, Bastien Vivès confirms his place as one of the most original and promising young writers of today.
