    I didn’t know someone had posted “Le grand detournement” somewhere on the net! I have heard so much good about it but it’s the first time I get to watch it! Sooo funny – yes, you’d better be native French to catch the jokes… BTW, good effort for your essay :) Brilliant as usual… I don’t know if you are trying to escape the city or yourself. Maybe both. When you grow in a city, town or village, that place becomes a part of you eventually. The most important thing is to have the opportunity to move and visit new places, cultures, etc. Besides, I believe moving from NY to a place like Angouleme is a bold move but it’s not like moving in the middle of nowhere. You know, it’s one of the few places to be when you are a comic artist. The real bold move was for you to quit that “real job” (what was it??) for living doing something you love, for less comfort. I respect that a lot. I wish I had done something like that… Anyways, keep on doing a great job. Like some French people would say: La classe americaine Sarah!!

    Alors, y’a une «version française» de cette BD? ;)

      Si quelqu’un veut le traduire, oui! Car je ne suis pas prête écrire comme ça en Français (évidemment).

    Amazing, I really look forward to reading this. I was on holiday in Charentes last week and ended the trip in Angouleme – a great city. You’re very lucky to be there.

    I can translate it if you still haven’t found someone.
    Would you be interested in meeting local students? (some are into art, some I might convince to read _How to understand Israel in 60 days or less_ + your pictorial essay about the elections… or/and some teens whom I will definitively never convince to read much of anything but who might be thrilled to meet you nevertheless, although I can’t even promise that because they’re at that jaded age… armpfff)
    Anyway if you’re still around, there are teenagers who’d learn a lot by meeting you if you’ve got time and if you’re used to kids. :p
    Also, it’s likely the local political parties will organize a giant “Watch The Debate” party on May 2 which might be interesting for you to watch and compare to similar occasions in the US.
