Brooklyn Quesadillas is the first English release of Huchette. I hope the success of this will make more of his work available to an English audience. I believe Huchette deserves all the attention because he is a new creator to be on the look out for and I can't wait to see what else he will do.
Kaczynski puts us in a certain moment in which the skways are about to be drastically changed and we gain a sneak peak into the life and culture of the skways. There's a lot going on in Skyway Sleepless but a lot of its hefty ideas are underneath the skin, teased at but never fully explored or talked about: from the social class system to the prediction of future crimes to the structure and rules of the skyway. This leaves a lot to imagine for the reader and allows a level of openness for us to fill in the gaps.
I was really taken by Skyway Sleepless and it's exercise on future prediction of crime and its ability to capture a state of emotional uncertainty at one perspective on the future.
