Editorial Reviews


"Zenobia is not so much a novel as a fable, a vignette in a lost life. ... [It] highlights, with simple clarity, Syria’s noble historical legacy as well as the plight of its modern people. Amina’s short and tragic harrowing and instructive." The New York Times Book Review

"Haunting and powerful. With very few words, Morten Dürr and Lars Horneman show all the devastation and despair of the Syrian refugee crisis." —Alan Gratz, author of the New York Times bestseller, Refugee

"Deceptively spare, this timely and important offering is a must-read, helping bring greater understanding and empathy to a situation that for many feels far away. Graphic storytelling at its most powerful." Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"The combined restraint of both the pictures and words powerfully amplifies the astonishing tragedy of the girl’s fate, creating an unforgettable story that will stay with teens and adults alike." Publishers Weekly

"This beautifully-wrought and completely devastating Danish graphic novel will probably make you angry. Or at least it should make you angry ... It’s a brief book that packs a wallop of emotion of its own, especially anger.
More than anything, Zenobia is the story of what happens when groups of people lose compassion for strangers. It’s the story of how things play out when difference is made the primary arbiter of how you qualify the worth of people. It’s a story that so many of us are in some manner, directly or indirectly, complicit." Comics Beat

"Dürr, an award-winning Danish writer of more than 50 titles, makes his North American debut here, and his sparse, sharp text is wondrously visualized by prodigious compatriot Horneman." Booklist

"Zenobia is a remarkable book that sends a strong message about one of the world’s most persistent crises. Its power lies in its visual simplicity and a very few poignant words but, above all, it is impossible not to identify with Amina and her parents and uncle. Their story becomes your own; their family, your own family. In short, if any book can be perfect, this is it." ArtsHub 

"Deeply moving" Jyllands Posten (Denmark)

"Powerful and haunting, Zenobia keeps your mind on edge as you flee war, hand in hand with a Syrian girl, connecting dots from history, holding your breath for a future with hope." —N.H. Senzai, author of Escape from Aleppo
