Bluffton: My Summers with Buster Keaton

(1) 4-6 This graphic novel tells the fictionalized story of Buster Keaton's boyhood summertime stays in Bluffton, Michigan, with the Actor's Colony, from the point of view of young town resident Henry. In delicate watercolor illustrations, Phelan carefully balances the joy of his subject's outrageous pranks with poignancy; the fictional elements weave seamlessly together with the historical ones.
