A Guy Who Floats : A Castaway's Comic Strip
The misadventures of a shipwrecked guy abandoned to his fate in the middle of the ocean are told in this illustrated narrative. Clinging to a wooden box floating adrift, the protagonist reflects on his life: his past experiences as well as his slim chances of survival. Helpless and unable to do anything to improve his condition, he is consumed in his constant daydreams, alternating between absolute despair and quiet abandonment, while suffering from hunger and thirst amidst treacherous weather. His thoughts are related in a stream-of-consciousness style as he navigates both the physical challenge of the seas and the solitary existence of his mind.
