Descripción del producto
"A beautiful, moving graphic novel." --Wall Street Journal "Delicate linework conveys wordless longing in this graphic novel about a lesbian relationship." New York Times Book Review (Editor's Choice) "Blue Is the Warmest Color captures the entire life of a relationship in affecting and honest style." --Comics Worth Reading "A tragic yet beautifully wrought graphic novel." --Salon.com "Love is a beautiful punishment in Maroh's paean to confusion, passion, and discovery ... An elegantly impassioned love story." --Publishers Weekly (STARRED REVIEW) "A lovely and wholehearted coming-out story ... the illustrations are infused with genuine, raw feeling. Wide-eyed Clementine wears every emotion on her sleeve, and teens will understand her journey perfectly." --Kirkus Reviews "The electric emotions of falling in love and the difficult process of self-acceptance will resonate with all readers ... Maroh's use of color is deliberate enough to be eye-catching in a world of grey tones, with Emma's bright blue hair capturing Clementine's imagination, but is used sparingly enough that it supports and blends naturally with the story." --Library Journal (STARRED REVIEW) "It's not just the French who have a better handle on sexy material than Americans -- Canadians do, too ... Who's publishing it? Not an American publishing house but by Arsenal Pulp Press, a Canadian independent." --Los Angeles Times "A deeply compelling story ... Maroh displays tremendous insight into the highs and lows of a young girl's journey of self-discovery as she moves from adolescence into adulthood." --Lambda Literary "A hymn to love." --Le Figaro "A sensitively told narrative." --Tetu Magazine
"A hymn to love." --"Le Figaro"
"A sensitively told narrative." --"Tetu Magazine"
""Blue Is the Warmest Color" captures the entire life of a relationship in affecting and honest style." --"Comics Worth Reading"
A lovely and wholehearted coming-out story ... the illustrations are infused with genuine, raw feeling. Wide-eyed Clementine wears every emotion on her sleeve, and teens will understand her journey perfectly. --"Kirkus Reviews "
"Julie Maroh, who was just 19 when she started the comic, manages to convey the excitement, terror, and obsession of young love--and to show how wildly teenagers swing from one extreme emotion to the next ... Ultimately, Blue Is the Warmest Color is a sad story about loss and heartbreak, but while Emma and Clementine's love lasts, it's exhilarating and sustaining." --Slate.com

Simply enough, the novel, written and drawn by Maron, is about a fifteen-year-old girl Clementine who is doing her best to be a "normal" young girl. She dates a senior at her high school, she studies for her exams, and she has the "right" friends. Until one moment of one day, as she's walking down the street, she passes a beautiful older girl with dyed blue hair, and she cannot get this girl out of her mind. The blue-haired beauty invades her dreams with shocking sensual and sexual imagery, and Clementine can't understand what these feelings mean. She just CAN'T be gay. She refuses it, and in that refusal, her passion for this mystery girl grows. As she sneaks out one night to be with her best friend, Valentin, who is a young gay man, they go to a gay bar, and Clementine meets the mystery girl. Her name is Emma. And from then on, Clementine, no matter how hard she tries, she can no longer deny the feelings of love and lust she has for Emma. But once they finally realize who they are to each other, all the other parts of Clem's life start to spiral out of control. Her parents refuse to accept their daughter's deviant lifestyle, as do her straight friends. Soon, all she really has is Emma, and for a even a short time, that's more than she ever thought possible. But time catches up to all, and it catches up to Clem in a tragic way that is certain to leave everyone in tears.
Maron gives Clementine such a realistic voice that any adolescent or someone who survived adolescence and the awakening of desire for love and sexuality can immediately relate. You feel your heart lift when hers does, and even more so, you feel your heart break when hers does. The art and particularly her use of color is excellent. The writing is so strong that you really feel that you're with these characters, and even though you may find some of them despicable, you understand them. Maron never makes the mistake of painting stereotypes of any of the characters, so that even when they do or say something terrible, you understand where they're coming from.
And this is the only other graphic novel, aside from Art Spiegelman's MAUS, that has ever made me cry.
Again, though, we must go to the place that I hate to go to, which is the argument of Art Versus Pornography. This book, which I'm sure is probably banned in more than a few libraries, has a sequence of graphic sex between Clementine and Emma. This will be objectionable to many parents of adolescents who may receive comfort from the emotional realism of the book, but it is NOT pornography. Pornography is meant for the sole purpose of sexual stimulation, and is not intended to show realistic portrayals of sex. And believe me when I state that there is nothing resembling that in the least in this book. Is it erotic? Yes. Is it art? Yes. Is it pornography? Absolutely not.
BLUE IS THE WARMEST COLOR is an extraordinary graphic achievement, and it's something that I would recommend to anyone with a love for great storytelling and an open mind.
The artwork is so well done, and the simple techniques Julie Maroh uses to carry the emotion and the unfold of the story keeps you glued to the pages. The romance between the two main characters is so palpable. Recommended for anyone seeking an LGBTQ read, or an amazing story about the ups and downs of coming of age love and passion.
The story is told through the eyes of Clementine’s lover Emma who has come into possession of Clementine’s diary following her death. In mostly black and white flashback Emma reads the story of her life as she has a first, tentative and unfulfilling relationship with a boy she meets at school, followed by a sexually charged encounter with a female student. Then there is her fateful meeting with Emma, an Art student with blue hair. What follows is an exciting, charged love affair not acceptable to everyone in Clementine’s life, not even at first accepted by her. Their relationship ripens into something of the utmost importance to both of them though it is not without conflict. Everything is portrayed in a romantically tinged realistic light.
Maroh skillfully sketches out relationships, events, and emotions using minimal text and simple drawings. Much of the book uses no colours but blue in order to mark off the events of the past in black and white The blue of Emma’s hair and Clementine’s journal clearly highlights the person and thing that were most important to Clementine. The artwork is adept at portraying everything from the joyous fun of teenaged parties to the awkwardness and beauty of sexual encounters, both happy and unhappy. Short passages quickly bring into sharp focus Clementine’s troubled relationship with her parents.
There is a message subtly put forth here that we do not choose those we fall in love with and there are many types of love. But Clementine’s coming of age story depicted through her explorations of sexuality and social development doesn’t feel like a vehicle for that idea. She is a fully realized character with longings and psychology heartbreakingly portrayed by the words and art in this book. With an autumnal tone of nostalgia and deep humanity Clementine’s story is here made both fascinating and universal.
