This chapter examines the connections between autobiography, realism, self-referentiality, and cultural authenticity in Frédéric Boilet’s nouvelle mangaYukiko’s Spinach. Drawing on French and Japanese literary and comics forms, film theory, and literary criticism, it considers the art-sociological context of the nouvelle manga as successor to bande dessinée and manga in general and to the nouvelle bande dessinée in particular. It also explores how Yukiko’s Spinach plays with the form of autobiography, especially the way the hybrid visual-linguistic field of comics confounds the conventional means of locating a “first-person” narrator. Moreover, the chapter compares manga and nouvelle manga as formal languages and analyzes Boilet’s visual syntax by revisiting Scott McCloud’s classic typology of transitions. Finally, it discusses nouvelle manga’s relationship to literature and film in the context of Jacques Rancière’s account of aesthetic modernity.
