Aya: Life in Yop City


AYA: LIFE IN YOP CITY is out in paperback everyone!!! This new edition brings together the first three volumes of the AYA series, complete with interviews and a wonderful set of appendices that will teach you everything you need to know about the Ivory Coast culture, from authentic recipes for chicken kédjénou to a glossary of local slang. This book is a perfect introduction to Abouet and Oubrerie’s award winning series, and will surely cause you to seek further volumes of this captivating story about a 19-year-old girl living in the Ivory Coast during the late 1970s.


 Our camera really doesn't do justice to Oubrerie's incredible color work. Just magnificent.

Part of the appendix demonstrates how to shake one's derriere, and how to properly
carry a baby on your back using a brightly coloured cloth known as a pagne.
