Flood" by Eric Drooker is a fantastical story – that is told only through images. The whole story is told through pictures, and Shaun Tan illustrates the book in a striking realistic style.

Flood!: A Novel In Pictures h/c back. Pictures are a means of communicating with people when words feel inadequate. Words are always one step removed, because we're encoding what we're trying to express into verbal symbols - which need to be deciphered. Pictures are the earliest form of writing, and drawing them is something we do as young children - long before learning to read and write. It's a fascinating interview raising points I hadn't thought.

Long out of print and now at its tenth anniversary, Flood! conveys all the joys and sadness that intermingle in our large cities ... and gives us a look at a possible future. This edition features a new introduction by historian and poet Luc Sante, a new cover by Drooker, and a complete redesign.
Reviews about Flood!: A Novel in Pictures (7):
Arar
I'd read an earlier edition of this book and like it very much. Although the description says: "A Novel In Pictures" there are really three discrete stories told in this book. The stories involve a factory worker who looses his job, a man who has weird vision on a subway, and a cartoonist who draws an apocalyptic depiction of a flood while it is actually happening all around him. Although the main characters look similar, and they seem to be Mr. Drooker's alter egos--after a 2nd reading I realized that they are not the same people. So I think it would be more accurate to say 3 Novellas In Pictures to be more accurate.

I like Mr. Drooker's artistic style--this edition of Flood has an interview with the author and bonus pictures from some of his other works, plus a cool 3D effect on the cover. If you have an earlier version of this book I don't think that the extra material contributes much to the overall stories; for those who have never read it I recommend this version over the earlier ones. If you have any of the older editions, however, you'll have to decide whether the bonus material and nice hard cover presentation is worth the price of admission.

Haunting, disturbing, and fascinating this book is not for the squeamish or prudish. There are pretty graphic depictions of sex, so I'd not recommend it for young people. It is not a "happy" book, but if you're looking for something thought provoking and very unique then I suggest your give it a whirl.

There is no artist who shakes me awake more than the visual work of Eric Drooker. His glowing covers have often appeared on The New Yorker, but it is
his ominous images that resonate, that go beyond the masks. FLOOD is just one of his vital books. If you haven't looked into the brilliant and wise array of Eric Drooker's paintings, drawings and reverse etchings, and in particular, FLOOD, what the hell are you waiting for?
Kashicage
This -- and its sister story found in Eric Drooker's BLOOD SONG -- are truly wonderful novels, amazing story, amazing artistic illustration -- visual poetry! I cannot give any graphic novel higher praise than FLOOD! Try to get the volume that has the interview with Drooker at the end, if you can (added insights into the art and artist) -- but definitely experience FLOOD in all its glory!

Found out about Eric through all his New Yorker covers. The man has a gift. If you want to be drawn into something and become memorized - look no further, this book will do it!
Boyn
Great! I read this without knowing all the images were done in scratch board, now feel compelled to read again to really appriciate Drooker's work.
Dancing Lion
I love Drooker's work and this one is my favorite. The last images are especially memorable. A powerful and compelling vision.
Auridora
First, this "novel" appears to contain two unrelated stories. "Flood" is the shorter of the two. I like a lot of Drooker's work, but as a piece of narrative this just didn't hold me for very long.
In both pieces very little action occurs-- most of the longer story involves the protagonist walking from one place to another. Most of "Flood" involves the protagonist ignoring an increasing level of water.
In addition, character development is almost absent.
After making a payment for this book, I have never received it nor did I hear anything back from this seller. My attempt to communicate with the seller has failed.
