Layered simplicity.

American Born Chinese - Gene Luen Yang

Everything in this wonderful graphic novel feels very straightforward at first -- the tripled narrative, the clarity of the artwork. But the story takes a few unexpected turns, which I won't spoil for you here, and which pulled me in more deeply than I realized at the time. The more I remember this book, the more complicated and intricate it seems, which is one of my very favorite kinds of reading experience. Definitely going to check out more by this author.
