Lillian the Legend in French

We are thrilled to announce that the Paris-based Editions L’Agrume have acquired the French rights to Kerry Byrne’s Lillian the Legend. The deal was agented by Nicolas Grivel. This graphic novel is a biography of Lillian Alling, a Russian immigrant to New York in the 1920s who decided to walk back to Russia! She walks the Telegraph Trail to Dawson City, Yukon, and eventually floats down the Yukon River to the Bering Sea where her fate becomes shrouded in mystery. Byrne renders Alling’s journey in meticulous inks, from sweeping landscapes to the tiniest detail, without missing a beat.
