Description:

By popular vote our Spring selection is “Sabrina” by Nick Drnaso.

Join us Wednesday May 15th at 7PM at CFI for another lively Secular Book Club discussion.

ABOUT THE BOOK

The follow-up to Nick Drnaso’s Beverly, winner of the Los Angeles Times Book Prize, Sabrina depicts a modern world devoid of personal interaction and responsibility, where relationships are stripped of intimacy through glowing computer screens. Presenting an indictment of our modern state, Drnaso contemplates the dangers of a fake-news climate. Timely and articulate, Sabrina leaves you gutted, searching for meaning in the aftermath of disaster.

Excerpts from Amazon user reviews:

“Sabrina is unnerving, distressing subtle, and humane. I couldn’t put it down. With a story that explores real human tragedy, the horrifying implications of extremist conspiracy theories, and the troubled lives of everyday people, this graphic novel is a compelling masterpiece.”

“No documentary, mockumentary, youtube clip, news special, social media post, film, book, podcast, or article has ever captured the complexity of media and humanity in 21st century America quite so lucidly as this graphic novel.”

“It was the first graphic novel ever to make the long list of the Man Booker Prize.”
