Syncopated : An Anthology of Nonfiction Picto-essays

Graphic Novel - 2009
Rate this:
The stories in Syncopated challenge convention, provide perspective, and search out secret truths-all in the inviting, accessible form of comics.

Syncopated will give you a daringly different view of the past-from the history of vintage postcards to the glory days of old Coney Island. It will immerse you in fascinating subcultures, from the secret world of graffiti artists to the chess champs of Greenwich Village. And it will open your eyes to pieces of forgotten history-for example, the Tulsa race riots of 1921-and to new perspectives on critical current events, such as the interrogation of prisoners at Guant#65533;namo Bay. These "picto-essays" encompass memoir, history, journalism, and biography in varied visual styles-each handpicked by Brendan Burford, one of America's top editors.
