Refreshing read. Even though the story doesn't really go anywhere it gives insight in daily life in Ivory Coast (in the 1980's) away from civil war or famine. The story focusses on male-female relationships. Funny interludes. Lively characters. Nice drawings. Nothing exceptional, yet recommended if you're interested in gaining a new or at least fresh perspective on this little known west African country. ( )

Not only is Aya complemented with Clement Oubrerie's gorgeous artwork, but the volumes also offer a slice of life peek into African culture: complete with recipes, glossaries, and wardrobe instructions for turning one's pagne (brightly colored fabric) into a skirt, head wrap, or baby carrier.… (more)
