Joann Sfar

Joann Sfar is a force of nature. Having produced over 100 books since the early 1990s, he continually enchants, disturbs, and delights his readers with his unique rambling brand of storytelling.

He happily blends memoir with fantasy and philosophical musing with outrageous inventiveness. Sfar has evolved a personal mythology and a wondrous gallery of characters, many of whom have no qualms about guest starring in his other works. The result is a personal universe that readers around the world visit and revisit in growing numbers.

His works include Vampire Loves, Klezmer, The Professor's Daughter (in collaboration with Emmanuel Guibert), the Sardine in Outer Space and Little Vampire series, and the Eisner Award-winning The Rabbi's Cat. He lives in Paris with his wife, his two children, and a cat.
