An experiment in social isolation turns into a journey of self-discovery as a photojournalist commits to chronicle 60 days in New York city without talking to a single person. More than just an exercise in observation and self-control, he's hoping to forget a troubled past and mend a broken heart. But the city has a sneaky way of throwing the best laid plans and noble efforts to waste revealing secrets that lie right in front of him. All he has to do is open his eyes ... A touching, vividly illustrated journey through contemporary modern New York, exploring what it takes to find yourself- and maybe your soulmate - in the middle of a crowded, bustling modern world.

MEDIA REVIEWS
LIBRARY JOURNAL -- The newest graphic novel from Italian creator Bevilacqua (G.I. Joe: Future Noir) follows the experiences of young photojournalist Sam, who attempts to live in New York City for 60 days without speaking a word to anyone. What begins as a challenge of self-control becomes a journey of self-discovery, as Sam unearths various black-and-white photos that not only feature the same red-haired woman but he doesn't remember taking in the first place. Sam desperately tries to find out who this mysterious woman is while remaining loyal to his challenge. Bevilacqua's beautiful illustrations of various New York landmarks beg to be viewed multiple times; he also offers a well-written exploration, without the use of much dialog, of finding love in one of the world's busiest cities.
Verdict A wonderful work that can be enjoyed by adults and those who may not regularly seek out graphic novels, it may be used as a gateway to introduce new readers to the graphic novel medium.-Taylor Silva, Fall River P.L., MA
