Sabrina is the intimate story of one man's suffering, but it also captures the political nihilism of the social-media era -a time when a President can dismiss the murder of a journalist by saying of the perpetrator, "Maybe he did. Maybe he didn't." The New Yorker
This graphic novel is a Midwestern Gothic tale for our times... A shattering work of art. The New York Times
Sabrina no es solo un paso adelante para la ficción literaria gráfica y de historietas, sino un libro que muestra los horrores resbaladizos de nuestra realidad posterior a la verdad. The Guardian
Es una descripción escalofriante de cómo se siente el mundo hoy día. NPR
Los dibujos simples y exactos de Drnaso capturan el sombrío vacío de gran parte de la vida contemporánea, la anomia flotando en casi todas las interacciones, tanto reales como virtuales. Sabrina deja al público sin aliento. The Chicago Tribune
Conspiracy theories, breakdown, murder: Everything’s gonna be all right?until it isn’t
When Sabrina disappears, an airman in the U.S. Air Force is drawn into a web of suppositions, wild theories, and outright lies. He reports to work every night in a bare, sterile fortress that serves as no protection from a situation that threatens the sanity of Teddy, his childhood friend and the boyfriend of the missing woman. Sabrina’s grieving sister, Sandra, struggles to fill her days as she waits in purgatory. After a videotape surfaces, we see devastation through a cinematic lens, as true tragedy is distorted when fringe thinkers and conspiracy theorists begin to interpret events to fit their own narratives.
The follow-up to Nick Drnaso’s Beverly, winner of the Los Angeles Times Book Prize, Sabrina depicts a modern world devoid of personal interaction and responsibility, where relationships are stripped of intimacy through glowing computer screens. Presenting an indictment of our modern state, Drnaso contemplates the dangers of a fake-news climate. Timely and articulate, Sabrina leaves you gutted, searching for meaning in the aftermath of disaster.
