"The Sculptor is a graphic novel by American cartoonist Scott McCloud published in 2015. It tells of a David Smith whom Death gives 200 days to live in exchange for the power to sculpt anything he can imagine. Complications set in when David falls in love."
Apologies I cannot remember who put this forward / recommended this book, I know it was in the end of year best-of mix, I picked up this weighty tome based on the recommendation and absolutely loved it. I think David's feelings although extreme are something I think most of us can relate to, 'what will be our legacy', 'are we wasting our valuable time here', 'nothing ever being how you envision it, never good enough'.
I simply loved this book & gave it straight to my daughter - I don't want to spoil anything but it is clever, touching and heart-breaking - wonderful book.
