Book Club

This is my month to host! Hooray! I picked an excellent graphic novel for you guys. Oh, yes, a graphic novel. All of you snobby-snobs who think that graphic novels are just “comics,” well, I hope this one can open your eyes.

I have picked Incognegro, by Mat Johnson and Warren Pleece. It is a noir-murder mystery set in the South during the 30s. A black reporter “passes” as white to investigate a murder that his brother supposedly committed. It deals with the issues that go with “passing,” which is a definite topic for those of us with varied backgrounds who appear “white.”

The art is fabulous, and the story is even better!

You can pick it up on Amazon.com, and I think Borders has it, too. Amazon is selling it really cheaply, though. I bought mine for 30, and it’s selling for 13! Doh!
