This fourth instalment in Michel Rabagliati's semi-autobiographical series finds Paul settling comfortably into adult life, twinges of anxiety aside. His graphic design business has taken off, his partner Lucie is pregnant and it's time to leave behind the city to go fishing. Paul's thoughts wander from the characters at the fish-and-game camp to the lurking depths of childhood, a Holden Caulfield-esque adolescence, and the encounters that have shaped his sense of family. But the lake isn't as idyllic as it seems, and neither is pregnancy. Elegant composition and spare drawing crystallize emotion and atmosphere in this wistful and engaging account of everyday hopes and hardships, told with a keen and playful sense of iconic detail. Even the mundane holds beauty and meaning in this compassionate story of expectation, disappointment and wonder."Rabagliati's bold black brush strokes are visual poetry." (Vancouver Courier)Praise for Paul Moves Out: "If Tintin were to eschew globetrotting and settle in Montreal, his life might look like this." (Toronto Star)"Both funny and touching, Michel Rabagliati's Paul Has a Summer Job has an authenticity sorely lacking in most forms of entertainment ... it reminds you of what you really enjoy literature for-the chance to connect to others and what's real." ( 14 and up
MICHEL RABAGLIATI is the cartoonist behind Paul in the Country, Paul Has a Summer Job and Paul Moves Out, which garnered Canada's Doug Wright Award for Best Book of the Year.

Editorial Reviews

His stories are personally revealing but gentle, full of kind people with common problems . . . Rabagliati employs a light, curvy drawing style and episodic plotting that overtly recalls Hergé's Tintin adventures, or Philippe Dupuy and Charles Berberian's Monsieur Jean stories.
