42 Down, 10 To Go "Trains Are...Mint" (52 Books, 52 Weeks)

Trains Are...Mint is a delightfully surprising graphic novel. Part memoir, part droll micro-travelogue, and part social critique, the book illustrates cartoonist Oliver East's quest to chronicle his walks along the train tracks from Blackpool to Manchester. East's illustrations are deceptively simple watercolors that manage to bring out both the beauty and the harshness of his environment. The accompanying monologue weaves East's own personal history and current life into the walks.
