La Perdida

Carla, una norteamericana distanciada de su padre mexicano, decide ir a la capital del país azteca para “encontrarse a sí misma”. Se instala en casa de un antiguo ligue que sigue las huellas de sus héroes William S. Burroughs y Jack Kerouac por los bares de la ciudad. Harry se toma con buen humor la reaparición de Carla en su vida hasta que se da cuenta de que ésta, que se pasa los días empapándose de la ciudad, explorando la casa de Frida Kahlo y aprendiendo español, no tiene intención de largarse.

Cuando la relación de mutua tolerancia entre Harry y Carla llega a su inevitable fin, ella reniega de su mundo de anglófonos expatriados y se busca su propio grupo de amigos: el guapo Óscar, un camello con ínfulas de DJ, y el carismático Memo, un mujeriego pseudointelectual de izquierdas.

Los evocadores dibujos en blanco y negro de Jessica Abel hacen cobrar vida a la ciudad de México de ayer y de hoy, desplegando la oscura historia de Carla frente a los legados de Burroughs y Kahlo. Un relato sobre el deseo juvenil de vivir una vida auténtica y las consecuencias de confiar en las respuestas sencillas, La perdida –arraigada en las especificidades de la vida en México y universal a la vez– es una historia sobre encontrarse a uno mismo al perderse.

    When I first started to read La Perdida I really enjoyed it because I was excited to read a graphic novel about a young Mexican-American woman. I also enjoyed the author/artist Jessica Abel's sparsely...

    I divide this book into two parts, even though it's not formally divided as such. There's such stylistic difference between them, it almost seems like there should be a formal divide. The first part o...

    I don't even recall how I stumbled across Jessica Abel's La Perdida—probably in doing research on Love & Rockets—but I'm glad I found it. While far from perfect, the first three-fifths of the grap...

    I have to say, I was extremely lukewarm to this book. It seems like the kind of thing I would like, but overall I didn't see what all the hype was about. The entire plot rests on the main character be...

    Although it's not a memoir, La Perdida is based on the author's personal experience and is memoir-esque. On the surface, it sounds interesting: a half-Mexican woman goes to Mexico to get more in touch...

    Great texture about life in Mexico City for a young American expat circa the dawn of email, reinforced by detailed and fluid drawing that's reminiscent of early Craig Thompson. What begins as a slice ...

    This is more like a 3.5 for me, but I'm rounding up.In some ways, I think the format of the graphic novel is somewhat limiting to the subject matter, since it involves issues of race and identity, and...

    as a graphic novel, i think "La Perdida" is a total success, the way the awesome illustrations tell the story and are supported by the text. i picked it up and started reading and couldn't put it down...

    More than anything a coming of age graphic novel where the young person is not only the narrator but their identity and that of a county lurching into the 21st century. The narrative trips over itself...
