Harvey by Hervé Bouchard and Janice Nadeau.


Title: Harvey.
Author: Hervé Bouchard.
Artist: Janice Nadeau.
Genre: Fiction, teen, YA, death, surrealist fiction.
Country: Canada.
Language: French.
Publication Date: 2009.
Summary: Harvey and his little brother, who is a lot taller than he is, are normal boys playing in the slushy streets of early spring when they suddenly learn that their father has died of a heart attack. Everything changes, and Harvey’s favorite movie, The Incredible Shrinking Man, suddenly begins to dominate his fantasy life. When relatives try to get him to look at his father in his coffin, he finds himself disappearing. An artful and utterly convincing look at the experience of extreme emotional trauma.

My rating: 7/10.
