Exit Wounds is the North American graphic novel debut of one of Israel’s best-known cartoonists, Rutu Modan. She has received several awards in Israel and abroad, including the Best Illustrated Children’s Book Award from the Israel Museum four times.
With luscious, water-colored illustrations, the narrative centers on a young man from Tel Aviv who learns, from a female soldier, that his estranged father may have been a victim of a suicide bombing in Hadera. As he reluctantly joins the soldier in a quest to unravel the mystery of his father’s death, he finds himself not only piecing together the last few months of his father’s life, but his entire identity.
