The Arrival is a treasure; a completely wordless graphic novel that unfolds almost like a silent movie and uses a number of very cinematic techniques to advance a narrative that describes the quintessential immigrant experience of wonder and assimilation but also nostalgia and loss. Shaun Tan's artwork is of the highest quality, rich with detail and emotion, and the story, despite its fantastical images reminiscent of surrealism and magic realism, is also deeply universal with a basic theme that will most likely resonate with all readers.
