Product Description

“I can’t wait…” is a book that speaks of the things you expect in life. When we are young, we expect little things: that the cake is tasty, that Christmas arrives, a kiss before falling asleep, then when we grow, we expect greater things: love or the end of the war. I’ve always made comics and humorous books, but recently I felt the need to write a book about the meaning of life. That’s how “I can’t wait…” was born. The book tells the things that happen in life with short sentences, but mostly with simple and tender images, created by Serge Bloch. Life is full of events happy or sad, the same goes for “I can’t wait…”: love, marriage, but also sickness and death. Although full of emotion, you can’t consider it a sad book. Maybe it’s my best book to date (…) Davide Cali
