Summary
"In the blasted ruins of what was once a picture-perfect suburb, nothing stirs--except the postman. Clad in a hazmat suit and mounted on a bicycle, he is still delivering the mail, nuclear apocalypse or no nuclear apocalypse. One family has taken refuge in an underground fallout shelter, and to them he brings--or, rather, shouts through the air vent--a series of odd, anonymous letters. They describe the family's prosperous past life, and then begin to get stranger. . . . This pioneering graphic novel was created in 1981 by famed French cartoonist Gébé, a longtime contributor to Charlie Hebdo, and has never before been available in English. Letter to Survivors is a blackhearted delight, at once a witty metafictional game of stories within stories and a scathing, urgent send-up of consumerist excess and nuclear peril: funnier, and scarier, than ever"--
