Book Description: 

<b>From the internationally acclaimed author of <i>Blankets </i>(&ldquo;A triumph for the genre.&rdquo;</b><i>&mdash;</i><b><i>Library Journal</i>), a highly anticipated new graphic novel.</b><br><b>&#160;</b><br>Sprawling across an epic landscape of deserts,&#160;harems, and modern industrial clutter, <i>Habibi</i> tells the tale of Dodola and Zam, refugee child slaves bound to each other by chance, by circumstance, and by the love that grows between them. We follow them as their lives unfold together and apart; as they struggle to make a place for themselves in a world (not unlike our own) fueled by fear, lust, and greed; and as they discover the extraordinary depth&mdash;and frailty&mdash;of their connection.<br>&#160;<br>At once contemporary and timeless, <i>Habibi </i>gives us a love story of astounding resonance: a parable about our relationship to the natural world, the cultural divide between the first and third worlds, the common heritage of Christianity and Islam, and, most potently, the magic of storytelling.
