The Yellow-Lighted Bookshop


Sylvie lives in a school in France. Her father is the head teacher and her home is a flat at the end of a hallway of classrooms. As a young child, Sylvie and her brother explore this most unusual kingdom, full of small mysteries and quirky surprises. But in middle and high school, life grows more complicated. Sylvie becomes aware of her parents’ conflicts, the complexities of shifting friendships and what it means to be the only Jewish family in town. She also begins to sense that her perceived ‘success’ relied on the pursuit of math and science – even though she loves art. In a funny and perceptive graphic memoire, Sylvie Kantorovitz traces her first steps as an artist and teacher.
