BOOK REVIEW

THAT SWEETEST WINE by Robert Cabot
GRAPHIC NOVELS & COMIC BOOKS
Released: Oct. 29, 1999

In his first fiction in nearly 30 years, Cabot (The Joshua Tree, 1970) offers an exemplary trio of novellas, each occupied with the theme of reconciliation to oneself and one's losses, presented in often stunning prose. Read full book review >
