In 1947, the author's grandfather, Arsene, traveled across the ocean to a mysterious, dangerous jungle colony at the behest of his cousin. Together they would build something deemed impossible: a utopia of modernity, in the wilderness — but not before Arsene falls in love with his cousin's wife, Marieke. Whether delirious from love or a fever-inducing jungle virus, Arsene's loosening grip on reality is mirrored by the reader's uncertainty of what is imagined or real by Arsene. This first full-length graphic novel from the critically-acclaimed Olivier Schrauwen is an engrossing, sometimes funny, slightly surreal and often beautiful narrative.

"Olivier Schrauwen is extraordinary. ... [He’s] the most original cartoonist I’ve fallen onto since Ware or Katchor." – Art Spiegelman

"This is where an interesting cartoonist becomes one of the great cartoonists. Arsène Schrauwen is that rarest of reads, something both truly deep and truly fun, not to mention utterly beautiful." – Matt Seneca

"Arsène Schrauwen is the best book of the year." – Tom Spurgeon

"...[T]he greatest story ever told!!!! It’s not cool to say that you wished everything was like 'this thing' or 'that thing' but I almost seriously wish everything WAS like this book!… IF YOU DON’T READ THIS YOUR LIFE WILL NEVER GET BETTER." – Sean Christensen A.B.T., Gridlords
