They were looking for love, but they couldn’t find love. So instead, they made a deal.
“Romance is dead.” So says Pamela Green, middle-class and middle-aged – a romance novelist suffering from writer’s block. Then, on a bridge crossing over the river, her unsettled life collides with that of a ragged young man. He’s survived for months on London’s streets, by his wits… and his looks. Under extraordinary circumstances Pamela invites him into her comfortable suburban home. There, in spite of obvious differences, they soon come to form an unlikely partnership, their once separate lives revived in stark new directions...
An intense hothouse drama, fierce, true to life, Room for Love is an original graphic novel unafraid to play with fire.
Praise for Room For Love:
“A markedly original work, with questions of identity and intimacy woven into the penumbra of a raw and authentic relationship.” — The Boston Globe
“ILYA approaches this graphic novel with realism that derails standard romantic tropes from its first page, conveying the characters’ melancholy mundanity with a sparse style that is a perfect complement to the script.” — Publishers Weekly
“While ILYA’s ilk are penning graphic novels that favor the realistic to the fantastical, this particular story adds an extra layer to the form by criticizing the assumptions we rely on when telling stories.” — The Huffington Post
