    Criss-crossing genres. Dennis Lehane's short story "Until Gwen" was adapted into a stage play entitled "Coronado". Now the French illustrator Jacques de Loustal has adapted the play into a short graphic novel, or should I say graphic short story, also entitled
    "Coronado". It just came out last week, as part of the "Noir" collection put out by Rivages/Casterman publishers. Good artwork, elliptical dialogue. Here's a link for a Youtube clip about Loustal discussing (in English) his work. Of some interest for the graphically enclined among us, perhaps. http://search.yahoo.com/search?p=coronado+loustal&toggle=1&cop=mss&ei=UTF-8&fr=yfp-t-701 Jean-Pierre Jacquet
