1st printing. Collects material from Drawn and Quarterly (1994-2003 Drawn and Quarterly) Volume 2 #4-6.
Story and art by Baru.
Road to America collects for the first time in complete form one of the best and most underrated comic "novellas" of the 1990's.
Originally serialized in three separate issues of Drawn and Quarterly, the story is set in Algeria in the late 1950's and early 1960's, during that country's long and bloody struggle to free itself from French colonial rule. Cartoonist Baru brilliantly documents an impoverished boxer's rise to fame amidst the chaos surrounding him and his family, from the slums of his hometown in Algeria to the bright lights of Paris.
