The first book by popular artist Sam Brown destined to rework the current conventions of the graphic novel. With the deceptively simple use of line of Matt Groening or James Thurber, the deft and elegant use of colour of Chris Ware or Herge, the cinematographic eye of Eric Drooker and the combined sense of dark humour and nostalgic sadness of Edward Gorey, Brown has created a sparse and engrossing novella that stands beautifully and beckoningly outside of any of the established forms or conventions of the comic book or the graphic novel to date. Like a medieval tapestry of Nathaniel West's Miss Lonelyhearts drawn by Keith Haring on a Wacom tablet, Sam Brown weaves a story within a story, a fable entwined in a narrative of urban disenchantment and pastoral escape.
