Fair Weather by Joe Matt
Book DescriptionFor over ten years Joe Matt has been notorious in cult circles for the embarrassing frankness with which he reveals his distressing habits and predilections. Utterly shameless and completely self-absorbed, Joe Matt writes with an exhibitionist's enthusiasm for his favorite subject, himself. In his new graphic novel, "Fair Weather," Joe examines his 1970s suburban childhood. In a surprisingly tasteful and thoughtful memoir young Joe Matt is a selfish child who steals from stores, takes advantage of his friends, threatens to burn his mother's house down, teases those weaker than himself, and reveals himself to be a fairly normal child. Completely unsentimental and strangely kind of endearing, "Fair Weather "continues the American tradition of hilarious self-exhibitionism.

Author Biography - Joe Matt
Joe Matt writes the legendary comic book "Peepshow"; an unflattering, although not strictly inaccurate, autobiography. Matt was born in 1963 in Philadelphia where evidently he never learned the meaning of shame.
