"We are Stardust, Tom." Nikos Gazidis is suffering from a strange psychiatric condition: he seems to have unwittingly crashed into the consciousness of his boss. Committed to an institution for the rich and unstable, Nikos is afflicted by the disturbing memories and violent emotions of a man who suffered from an abusive father and a neglectful mother. That man, Tom, feels nothing. But when Nikos's sister begins preventing Tom from sharing his memories with his colleague, things begin to change...Adapted from one of the centrepieces of Levy's short story collection Black Vodka, Stardust Nation is an absurdly funny, unsettling and unforgettable graphic novel about memory, empathy and how we are, all of us, connected.
"Levy's strength is her originality of thought and expression." Jeanette Winterson
