The Vagabond Valise

A comic book by Siris.

Siris, translated by Rupert Bottenberg

A poignant account of an alcoholic father who drags his family into misfortune, The Vagabond Valise is the heart-breaking autobiographical story of Siris, represented by his chicken-headed alter ego.

Siris paints a sincere and poetic portrait of a troubled childhood spent in and out of foster homes, and the working-class, post-war Quebec where it took place. (From Conundrum Press)
