We the Animals

Us three. Us brothers. Us kings, inseparable.

Three boys tear through their childhood, in the midst of their young parents’ volatile love that makes and unmakes the family many times over.

While Manny and Joel grow into versions of their loving and unpredictable father, Ma seeks to shelter her youngest, Jonah, in the cocoon of home.

More sensitive and conscious than his older siblings, Jonah increasingly embraces an imagined world all his own.

"Zagar has a gift for capturing a character's essence in an image or two, via simple compositions occasionally augmented by spellbinding snatches of animation. And he imbues the entire enterprise with a fascinating feeling of maybe-memory."

Jason Bailey, Village Voice

"A complicated coming-of-age tale that not only brings refreshing insights but gives us beautifully rendered images that have the power to haunt you for days."

Jordan Ruimy, The Playlist

"Adapting Justin Torres' autobiographical novel, Jerimiah Zagar crafts a haunting, singular coming-of-age story."

Brent McKnight, Seattle Times
