December Books 2) A Contract With God

2) A Contract With God, And Other Tenement Stories, by Will Eisner.

More comics education. This is very good. The title story in particular (I have actually been to the synagogue in Tbilisi/Tiflis, where the main character starts his life), and the last story, "Cookalein" which juggles about a dozen characters and storylines and stays on top of them all in only 50-odd pages are very memorable; I was a bit less satisfied with the middle two, which both feature nasty male characters who exploit those around them and then get their come-uppance. Will copntinue working my way through that list, it's got me two good reads out of two so far.
