Summer 1996, Nicolas is staying with his Aunt Rose who is in mourning. To pass the time, Nicholas helps her look after her garden and discovers a passion for botany. Like the majority of teenagers, he is searching for his identity and asks her many questions. But Nicolas has quite a way to go before he realises the extent that this summer will have changed him.

With
Perfume of Lilacs, we are submerged into the mind of a teenager in the full throes of puberty and his emerging sexuality. Sometimes shocking, this book will lead the reader to question the taboos of our society.

“Small in form but breathtakingly diverse in output, Soaring Penguin Press have become renowned for their eclectic publishing catalogue.” – Andy Oliver

Forbidden Planet

•Comics retailer

“It’s very satisfying to see further translations of comics from other languages continuing to make their way onto our reading radar – of course compared even just to the bande dessinée published in French, let alone other languages, it’s only a fraction, but it is a far bigger fraction of work being translated by publishers like SP and other very good Indies now than just over a decade ago … and that’s great to see.” – Joe Gordon
