Summary

‘An incredibly lovely book. Beautiful, kind, witty and calm.’ Max Porter, author of Grief is the Thing With Feathers

Chabouté’s enchanting story of a park bench was first published to critical acclaim in France in 2012. Faber now brings his work to the English-speaking world for the first time.

Through Chabouté’s elegant graphic style, we watch people pass, stop, meet, return, wait and play out the strange and funny choreography of life. Fans of The Fox and the Star, The Man Who Planted Trees and Richard Linklater’s Boyhood will find this intimate graphic novel about a simple park bench – and the people who walk by or linger – poignant, life-affirming and brilliantly original.

Chaboute

Christophe Chabouté was born in Alsace and studied Fine Arts at Angoulême and then Strasbourg. He is the author of many books, including The Park Bench (2017) and Alone, which Faber will publish in 2018.
