Issued by French publisher Futuropolis, L'Automne à Pékin is a graphic novel adaptation of the 1947 surrealist novel by writer Boris Vian, Autum in Peking.


Autumn in Beijing tells the story of a man who, having missed his bus, built a railway line in the middle of the desert. The Brizzi brothers' drawings reveal the absurd and the comic of Vian's writing, and his talent for writing love stories.
