Listen, Beautiful Marcia

Marcello Quintanilha

39

Prior to and during the Olympic Games, vehicle access will be restricted in Paris, so orders may take longer than usual to process.

Marcia is a nurse in a hospital near Rio and lives in a favela with her boyfriend, Aluisio, and her daughter, Jaqueline, whom she had very young with another man. Jaqueline, a troubled young adult, makes life difficult for her mother and Aluisio rebelliously hangs out with members of a neighborhood gang, leading to violent altercations between mother and daughter. The situation degenerates even more when Jaqueline is arrested. Marcia and Aluisio, distraught, realize that Jaqueline is in deeper trouble than they ever thought. Marcello Quintanilha's first English-language graphic novel is a tour de force - a tightly wound drama filled with masterful suspense and a deep love for family and character.
