  • Exit Wounds


Learning that his estranged father may have been a victim of a suicide bombing in Hadera, Koby reluctantly joins the soldier in searching for clues. His father's death would certainly explain the empty apartment and disconnected phone line. As Koby tries to unravel the mystery of his father's death, he finds himself not only piecing together the last few months of his father's life, but his entire identity.

With thin, precise lines and luscious watercolors, Modan creates a portrait of modern Israel, a place where sudden death mingles with the slow dissolution of family ties. Exit Wounds is the North American graphic novel debut from one of Israel's best-known cartoonists, Rutu Modan.

She has received several awards in Israel and abroad, including the 'Best Illustrated Children's Book' Award from the Israel Museum in Jerusalem (four times) and the 'Young Artist of the Year' by the Israel Ministry of Culture. She is a chosen artist of the Israel Cultural Excellence Foundation.
