“Exit Wounds”, by Rutu Modan

Posted by kneidalach on October 15, 2007


Set in modern-day Tel Aviv, a young man, Koby Franco, receives an urgent phone call from a female soldier. Learning that his estranged father may have been a victim of a suicide bombing in Hadera. Koby reluctantly joins the soldier in searching for clues. The father’s death would certainly explain his empty apartment and disconnected phone line. As Koby tries 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.
