The Cigar that Fell in Love with a Pipe
Following the release of his latest movie, Orson Welles - renowned director and smoking aficionado - receives a celebratory box of cigars. As he indulges his habit, Welles comes to realise exactly what he's smoking: the final creations of Conchita Marquez, Cuba's finest cigar roller. Ranging from the heyday of the cigar industry to the glamorous heights of Hollywood's Golden Age, The Cigar that Fell in Love with a Pipe inventively combines romance, history, imagination and nicotine to ask the burning question: can love triumph over adversity, or does it all go up in smoke?
Poland, 1941. Sixteen-year-old Harry Haft is sent to Auschwitz. When he is forced to fight against other inmates for the amusement of the SS officers, Haft shows extraordinary strength and courage, and a determination to survive. As the Soviet Army advances in April 1945, he makes a daring escape from the death march. After the war, having escaped the Nazis, Haft again puts his strength to good use, establishing a career as a prize fighter in the USA. In 'The Boxer', Reinhard Kleist reveals another side to the steely Harry Haft: a man struggling to escape the memories of the fiancée he left behind in Poland. This is a powerful graphic novel about love and the will to survive.
