Marcel Theroux and Gosh!

Yesterday Marcel Theroux (brother of Louis) popped in to film a segment for BBC Two’s The Review Show in the corner of our lovely shop. The episode screens tomorrow night at 11pm and it’s all about the best books to buy this Christmas. Theroux‘s choice? Craig Thompson‘s Habibi.

Our bookplate edition has long sold out, making a disappearance from the shelves almost as quick as the final volume of Scott Pilgrim many moons ago. We’ve still got plenty of regular copies available and it remains the most talked about (and argued about) graphic novels to date. It’s a Gosh! favourite and my personal pick of the year.

“Sprawling across an epic landscape of deserts, harems, and modern industrial clutter, HABIBI tells the tale of Dodola and Zam, refugee child slaves bound to each other by chance, by circumstance, and by the love that grows between them.

At once contemporary and timeless, HABIBI gives us a love story of astounding resonance: a parable about our relationship to the natural world, the cultural divide between the first and third worlds, the common heritage of Christianity and Islam, and, most potently, the magic of storytelling.”

Watch the show tomorrow night (that’s Friday, December 2nd, 11pm on BBC Two! — details here) or catch it on iPlayer. Then pop in and buy the thing for £20. It’s a good’un.
