PS: The Listener has been selected as one of the best books of 2011, so far, by the School Library Journal (New York).

A few reviews of The Listener:

"A dense and fiercely intelligent work that asks important questions about art, history, and the responsibility of the individual, all in a lyrical and stirring tone." -- Publishers Weekly (New York)

"This demands to be added to any shelf on which Anne Frank’s Diary, as well as Maus or Miriam Katin’s We Are on Our Own are available." -- School Library Journal (New York)

"... a meditative, memorable graphic novel." -- Baltimore City Paper (Baltimore, MD)

"Lots of depth, lots of great imagery." -- Comic Attack (Los Angeles, CA)

"Lester’s drawing is wonderfully expressive and the book is an intense and well-structured look at a forgotten pivotal moment in history..." -- Sequential (Canada)

The Listener by David Lester (Arbeiter Ring Publishing) $19.95, ISBN: 9781894037488
