JAMILTI reviewed by Boston Globe

Jamilti and Other Stories

The Boston Globe    |    Carlo Wolff    |    November 23, 2008

Rutu Modan's "Jamilti" is a story collection in which the artistic style varies by literary theme. Profoundly feminist and imaginative, the gifted Israeli artist populates her stories with characters struggling to make sense of a world spinning out of control. Here, the gyre widens around politics and sex, sometimes separately, at times together: "The Panty Killer," its multihued art simultaneously stark and ornate, is gruesomely funny, while the black-and-white "Bygone" probes white lies that can preserve a sense of family.
