Tales from Outer Suburbia by Shaun Tan [in Bloomsbury Review]
From the genius mind that brought you the wordlessly breathtaking bestseller, The Arrival, comes a collection of 15 short stories for all ages, uniquely illustrated in Tan’s signature enigmatic style. The second story, “Eric,” about the visit by a foreign exchange student like no one has ever seen, ends in one of those delightful gasps that leave you almost teary with just pure joy. Tan’s latest is a collection to be savored, with or without your kids.
