The highly anticipated continuation of Riad Sattouf’s internationally acclaimed, #1 French bestseller, which was hailed by The New York Times as “a disquieting yet essential read”

In The Arab of the Future: Volume 1 , cartoonist Riad Sattouf tells of the first years of his childhood as his family shuttles back and forth between France and the Middle East. In Libya and Syria, young Riad is exposed to the dismal reality of a life where food is scarce, children kill dogs for sport, and his cousins, virulently anti-Semitic and convinced he is Jewish because of his blond hair, lurk around every corner waiting to beat him up.

In Volume 2, Riad, now settled in his father’s hometown of Homs, gets to go to school, where he dedicates himself to becoming a true Syrian in the country of the dictator Hafez Al-Assad. Told simply yet with devastating effect, Riad’s story takes in the sweep of politics, religion, and poverty, but is steered by acutely observed small moments: the daily sadism of his schoolteacher, the lure of the black market, with its menu of shame and subsistence, and the obsequiousness of his father in the company of those close to the regime. As his family strains to fit in, one chilling, barbaric act drives the Sattoufs to make the most dramatic of changes.

Charlie Hebdo cartoonist Riad Sattouf's graphic novel recalls his own struggles, as a half Syrian six-year-old, to navigate life in the Middle East .

In 1984, after taking a summer vacation in France, Riad Sattouf, along with his French mother, Syrian father, and little brother, moves to his father’s village near Homs in Syria. From the moment he enters Syria, he receives a mixed reception; some hail the 6-year-old blond foreigner, while others hate him for being half French and therefore a “Jew.”

Sattouf, a cartoonist and filmmaker who worked for the satirical French weekly Charlie Hebdo for a decade until 2014, was born in Paris in 1978. Soon after he was born, his father, Abdel-Razak, a devout Pan-Arab nationalist, took his family to Libya and then Syria.
