The saga of Katchoo, Francine, and David continues, and their relationships with each other and with their circle of friends intertwine and become ever more complicated. The over-lying themes are regret, and loyalty and betrayal. Book 2 opens 10 years down the line from Book 1 (2005), with the trio separated. Francine is a bored, unhappy housewife stuck in a bad marriage. Katchoo is a successful artist who lives life at a distance. David is nowhere to be seen. Flashbacks reveal the trials and tribulations that have slowly worn away friendship: Francine's inability to decide what she wants from life and from Katchoo, David's mysterious past that links him even closer to Katchoo, and the Mafia life that still won't let Katchoo go. The particular beauty of Moore's graphic storytelling shows in its seamless welding of the events of everyday life and extraordinary underworld/Mafia plot.His writing slips easily from traditional comics dialogue to prose to poetry without missing a beat. His characters live and breathe so vividly that it shows how much he loves them and induces the reader to love them, too. Moore's artwork is consistently gorgeous--darkly cute, conveying emotion with subtle grace and a human touch. Strangers in Paradise is one soap opera no one should miss. Tina Coleman
