I loved Kevin Baker's historical novel "Dreamland" so I expect that this new graphic novel illustrated by Danijel Zezelj and published by D.C. Comics could be great. They will both be at the Lower Eastside Tenement Museum on Tuesday talking about it. This is a FREE event!
Luna Park: A Graphic Novel
With Kevin Baker and Danijel Zezelj
Moderated by Karen Berger, executive editor at DC Comics
"Our favorite historical novelist is back with this punchy and ghostly modern-day noir, set in the ruins of America ’s most famous amusement park. A former Russian soldier fights gangs and his memories of the war in Chechnya , all while traveling through alternative histories of his own life. Joining Baker is the book’s illustrator."
Kevin Baker is the author of Dreamland and Strivers Row, among other works of fiction and non-fiction. He is a longtime friend of the Tenement Museum who used the stories of 97 Orchard Street as inspiration two of his novels’ Lower East Side settings."
