PREVIEW: Dreams and Everyday Life is a short, philosophical, biographical graphic novel. It focuses on the moments in life that aren’t the big, life-changing happenings, but instead picks gentle fun at the little things. Aviv Ratzin is writing about himself but he sweeps away things like career and hobbies – the things that suck up most of his time – in the first few pages. Instead he focuses the book on the gaps inbetween, the everyday stuff that everyone does but often remain peculiar to the individual.
It’s a charming-looking book, with beautiful clear-line illustration that creates an easy flow through the narrative. Well worth a look if you like accessible, charming, thoughtful, slice-of-life comics.
