"For her first book House of Sugar, Rebecca Kraatz won The Doug Wright Award for Best Emerging Talent in 2007. Her latest graphic novel, Snaps, takes place during the Second World War in a small town on Vancouver Island. Combining magic realism with pulp dialogue, the interweaving narrative is told from various points of view. Soldiers, seniors, working women, and children tell their “slice of life” stories in brief vignettes, like snapshots in the found photo album from which Kraatz originally drew inspiration. Sometimes dreamy, often surreal, Snaps will further establish her reputation as a gifted writer and artistic talent to watch."
