Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Extraordinary . . . Anarchy reigns. It's a sketchbook on speed: spidery pencil lines; furious crossings out; sprawling handwriting. Even the ISBN number on the first page has been drawn in his inimitable hand. . . . Highly satisfying."  —Guardian

"An extraordinary work . . . he is all the better for being new to the supposed rules of the graphic novel, because he brings invention, wit, confusion and occasional anarchic genius. From neat manuscript or inky typewriting to photo-collages, dense comics or full-page pictures, there is no preparing for what will confront you with each turn of the square page."  —Times Literary Supplement
