About this product
- DescriptionMeet Wilson, an opinionated middle-aged loner who loves his dog and quite possibly one else. In an ongoing quest to find human connection, he badgers friends and strangers alike into a series of one-sided conversations, punctuating his own lofty discursions with a brutally honest, self-negating sense of humour. After his father dies, Wilson, w irrevocably alone, sets out to find his ex-wife with the hope of rekindling their long-dead relationship, and discovers he has a teenage daughter, born after the marriage ended and given up for adoption. Wilson eventually forces all three to reconnect as a family - a doomed mission that will surely, inevitably backfire. In his first all-new graphic vel, one of the leading cartoonists of our time, Daniel Clowes, creates a thoroughly engaging, complex and fascinating character study of the modern egotist - outspoken and oblivious to the world around him. Working in a single-page gag format and drawn in a spectrum of styles, the cartoonist of Ghost World , Ice Haven and David Boring gives us his funniest and most deeply affecting vel to date.
- Author BiographyDaniel Clowes was born in 1961. He is the creator of the comic books Eightball, Ghost World, which was made into a film by the director Terry Zwigoff, David Boring, and Ice Haven.
