Description

The comics legend’s first new book since his 2015 bestseller Killing and Dying. ‘Adrian Tomine has more ideas in twenty panels than novelists have in a lifetime.’ Zadie Smith ‘A hilarious and occasionally heartbreaking memoir.’ Irish Times Through a series of exquisitely observed autobiographical sketches, Adrian Tomine explores his life – from an early moment on the playground being bullied, to a more recent experience, lying on a gurney in the hospital, and having the nurse say ‘Hey!
