Missed It: Jane, The Fox And Me Makes NYT 10 Best Illustrated Books List For 2013

Frederick Gauthier wrote in to CR to inform me that Jane, The Fox And Me was the first graphic novel to make the New York Times' best illustrated books list. I don't know if that's all the waytrue, and while I'm on the road I'm sort of flummoxed in terms of ways to find out -- particularly if I were to check that against my own standard of what constitutes such a work. It's not like there isn't cause for congratulations all around apart from the potential historical moment involved, and I do know that unlike a book where you might go, "Oh, that's really a graphic novel," Jane was always published that way.

Jane, The Fox And Me is by Fanny Britt and Isabelle Arsenault; the translation in the North American version is by Christelle Morelli and Susan Ouriou.

It was well-reviewed by the Times earlier this year.
