    Mazena Sowa(Author) Sylvain Savoia(Artist)
Written by MARZENA SOWA Art and cover by SYLVAIN SAVOIA “I am Marzi, born in 1979, ten years before the end of communism in Poland. My father works at a factory, my mother at a dairy. Social problems are at their height. Empty stores are our daily bread. I’m scared of spiders, and the world of adults doesn’t seem like a walk in the park.”Told from a young girl’s perspective, Marzena Sowa’s memoir of a childhood shaped by politics feels remarkably fresh and immediate. Structured as a series of vignettes that build on one another, MARZI is a compelling and powerful coming-of-age story that portrays the harsh realities of life behind the Iron Curtain while maintaining the everyday wonders and curiosity of childhood. With open and engaging art by Sylvain Savoia, MARZI is a moving and resonant story of an ordinary girl in turbulent, changing times.

Marzena Sowa was born in Stalowa Wola, Poland. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Paperback.

    Very interesting if you knew little about reality of living in Poland during communism. The story is told from the perspective of a little girl, how she sees the changes happening in her country, what she understands of the reality and how she dreams about a better future. Beautifully illustrated. Really engrossing.

    I really enjoyed this comic, and really felt enlightened and educated about a period in history that I knew very little about. Not everything in here can be taken as gospel, but entertaining and informative all the same.
