Overview

Like her acclaimed Gemma Bovery, Posy Simmonds's Tamara
Drewe is a funny and wise original novel in graphic form, with
a delightfully sly nod to a literary classic as well as to contemporary
mores.

As Tamara Drewe opens, an aspiring American novelist, Glen
Larson, is returning to a crime writer's retreat in the English countryside,
run by long-suffering Beth Hardiman and her husband,
Nicholas, a charismatic detective novelist. Into their midst arrives
newspaper columnist Tamara Drewe, whose recent nose job has given
her a newfound confidence. Aware of her powers over men,Tamara
little suspects that local teens Casey and Jody also keep tabs on her
every move, including her torrid affair with Nicholas. Snooping in
Tamara's house, Casey and Jody soon begin sending e-mails from her
computer -- with unexpectedly dark consequences.

Tamara Drewe is that rare graphic novel for grownups, sure to
appeal to fans of literate and literary comics such as Fun Home and
Persepolis.
