Whether it’s a farmer’s descent into existential delusion, or a common house fly’s speedy evolution into a social network hound, you’ll be kept as off-balance as you are entertained. Angelini’s highly personal and sensitive artwork brings to mind the work of Henri Rousseau, and is the perfect companion to Taddei’s direct, uncompromising use of words.
I’m very pleased to be bringing this work to English-speaking audiences. Short and Merciless Stories is a wonderful collection written by Marco Taddei and drawn by Simone Angelini. Each of these fables pulls from the strong sense of dread that we all have hidden in the pit of our stomachs… and forces us to laugh about it.
I can’t recommend this book enough.
