Marzi #1 Little Carp / Petite Carpe by Marzena Sowa

A graphic novel which follows Marzi, a 7-year-old little girl in 1980s communist Poland. It’s quite a short, fast read organised as a series of little stories. It gives you an innocent view of everyday life at the time, which you as an adult can understand better than Marzi. Some of it is sweet, some of it is a bit sad – like the story of the poor little girl who gets pushed to the side while queuing at the shop and doesn’t get any oranges as the woman behind her got the last ones, but they’re all quite enjoyable. I would like to read the other books in the series.

J’ai decouvert apres la lecture que c’est en fait une traduction d’une BD francaise. Elle se compose de petites “nouvelles” dans la vie de Marzi, une fillette de 7 ans dans la Pologne communiste des annees 80. C’est une lecture rapide et agreable, parfois un peu naive du fait que l’heroine soit si jeune, parfois un peu triste quand il lui arrive des malheurs. J’ai bien aime et j’aimerais lire la suite.
