Blue is the Warmest Colour

Julie Maroh

A passionate and intense story that bristles with the energy of youth and rebellion. The conflicts and contradictions of young love are reflected in this graphic novel. Characters are expressed in subtle and subdued colours and complimented with poetic language. The strength of desire for self discovery and a sense of belonging challenge familial, friendship and sexual loyalties in this bitter sweet and tragically beautiful visual treat.

Extract

For Emma, her sexuality is something that draws her to others, a social and political thing. For me it's the most intimate thing there is. She calls it cowardice, but all I want is to be happy. One way or another . . . like everyone else.
