Annatto (Achiote)

This is the first graphic novel by Montt with 13 individual chapters, each with a personal and real anecdote that has marked the author’s life. It is both funny and moving, and has Alberto’s characteristic style of illustration. This is a unique form of memory writing, one that will definitely make the reader laugh, as is now usual with Alberto’s work.

Critics

“I began to need Daily Dose as a filthy junkie... Montt’s addictive books ruined my meetings, my friends were so hooked onthem that they stopped talking and stayed there all in silence. We were only interrupted by our own psychotic laughs.”

—Malena Pichot

“Montt mixes apples and oranges and doesn’t ask us to choose one of them. His books are the unusual space where opposites work together. There, the penguin and the polar bear, coming from opposite polesof the planet, find out how exciting it is to share the same bed”

—Juan Villoro

“Really, a genius.”

—Manu Arregui Biziola
