An unpretentious and gently humorous story of an Africa we rarely see--spirited, hopeful and resilient--Aya won the 2006 award for Best First Album at the Angouleme International Comics Festival.Aya tells the story of its 19-year-old heroine, the studious and clear-sighted Aya, her easygoing friends Adjoua and Bintou, and their meddling relatives and neighbours. It's a breezy and wryly funny account of the desire for joy and freedom, and of the simple pleasures and private troubles of everyday life in Yop City. Clement Oubrerie's warm colours and energetic, playful line connect expressively with Marguerite Abouet's vibrant writing."That's what I wanted to show in Aya: an Africa without the ... war and famine, an Africa that endures despite everything because, as we say back home, life goes on." (Marguerite Abouet)
