The Boys of Sheriff Street - illustrated by Jacques de Loustal and written by Jerome Charyn (2016)
"Jerome Charyn is one of our great American writers. ... For this review, we look at 'The Boys of Sheriff Street,' illustrated by Jacques de Loustal and written by Jerome Charyn. This is a beautifully tragic love story–at an exquisitely high level of artistry. Graphic novels are not always what some people may expect, not even aspiring cartoonists. ... And so it is with this book which is 80 pages. That’s perhaps more of a European standard–but it works so well. Consider this work quite the treat with its theatrical and painterly flourish. ..."
