This debut graphic novel is a series of short stories tied together by one about two teenagers who meet and fall in love after a 1964 Beatles concert in Scotland.
This story is told in dual perspective by Miriam (a second-generation Iranian immigrant living in Edinburgh with her family) and George (a visitor from Wales). Their relationship throughout the decades mirrors the Beatles’s. In the other stories in this book, thematically bound by relationship flux and the impact of culture, Dean experiments beautifully with style and storytelling devices in each piece.
Copies of I Am Young signed by the cartoonist are available while supplies last!
