Paul Karasik

Adaptations: Gained in Translation

Paul Karasik was responsible, together with David Mazzucchelli, for adapting Paul Auster's novel, City of Glass (1994) as a graphic novel. This experience, among others, helps him to
unveil the language of comics and to demonstrate that, with meticulous
work, adaptation can actually enrich the original material. Karasik
recovers some prominent adaptations to see how the singular language of
comics can enhance meaning.
