“If I learned one thing from making this book it’s that, as writers and artists, we need to shed light on life’s complexities; to dismantle our oftentimes stereotypical understanding of history, of society, of ourselves, and of each other. To continue to ask difficult and uncomfortable questions, and to unyieldingly advocate for a more humane society.”
Nora Krug on winning the NBCC Autobiography Award for her graphic memoir, Belonging: A German Reckons with History and Home (Scribner Books).

I was very happy to find out that my book "Heimat: Ein deutsches Familienalbum" was nominated for the German Youth Literature Prize. Winners will be announced at this year's Frankfurt Book Fair.

Natürlich Klasse, aber ist es denn ein "Jugendbuch" ? Oder wird in Deutschland eine graphic novel für Erwachsene auch schnell Mal als Comicbuch für Kinder gesehen (und unterschätzt)?
