Timbuktu a novel

A vividly rendered, almost graphic-novel approach that is simultaneously funny, dark and emotionally moving. The fragments of text and art here add up to a kind of collage that reveals a portrait of "man's best friend" as he struggles to understand his old homeless master's life, and to learn what it means to fit into human society.
