Rate this:
In an equinox, day is as long as night, as if the world found perfect equilibrium between shadow and light, a fleeting equilibrium, similar to the stakes of our human destinies. Segmented into four tableaux for four seasons, unrelated people of all social backgrounds seeking equilibrium cross paths with other solitudes, weaving in and out of one another's lives, all captivated and tormented by the enigmatic meaning of life. Every season has its visual identity and its individual voice, culminating in summer and, possibly, an answer. Equinoxes is a unique ground-breaking work of rare intensity and narrative sensibility by a rising bestselling star of European comics.

This is a beautiful book. The art is outstanding. It also has an interesting structure of a young woman roaming around taking photo portraits of people that interest her. The story goes from visual sequence (graphic novel) to prose and back, describing their lives. The picture-taker also at times describes her own life in prose. Sticking to this structure, while an impressive discipline, grew at times tedious. No one seemed especially interesting, except in a standard contemporary angst way.
