About the book

Simon Antonisse is a book dealer in times of economic crisis who is forced to shut up shop because of poor sales. Tragedy strikes when he witnesses a suicide while out driving. It hits him like a bomb. Memories from childhood trouble him more and more, and Simon’s life is gradually transformed into a turbulent dream. Only Regina, a young girl he comes upon by chance, can give him the peace and love he longs for.

An overwhelming graphic novel … Majestic and compelling, with beautiful drawings and a cast-iron story. More of this, Aimée! ***** – VERONICA MAGAZINE

Beautifully drawn, realistic without being hyperrealistic. Enchanting, with space for the imagination. Exactly what a good story should do. … Buy and read this splendid book. – HET PAROOL

With its balanced rhythm of two alternating storylines, a drawing style both sketchy and precise, attention to perspective and divergent framing, as well as a surprising plot, this is a thoroughly mature debut. – NRC HANDELSBLAD
