Aya tells the story of the studious and clear-sighted 19-year old Aya, her easy-going friends Adjoua and Bintou, and their meddling relatives and neighbors. It’s wryly funny, breezy account of the simple pleasures and private troubles of everyday life in Yop City. Set in 1970s Ivory Coast.

Writer Marguerite Abouet and illustrator Clément Oubrerie’s colorful Aya is now available in 2 large paperbacks. Aya: Life in Yop City contains volumes 1-3. Aya: Love in Yop City contains volumes 4 - 6.
