Overview

Representing Julia Wertz's critically acclaimed first graphic memoir in a new format, with a brand new sketchbook from Wertz, and an introduction by Janeane Garofalo. But don't worry; we haven't replaced any of the wrenching and ribald, whiskey-soaked coming-of-age tale. This is Wertz at her best, which is sometimes her worst.

Julia Wertz lives and works in Brooklyn. She is the author of the autobiographic comic books The Fart Party Vols. 1 and 2 (Atomic Books, 2007, 2009). Both volumes were collected as Museum of Mistakes in 2014, Drinking at the Movies (Random House, 2010) and The Infinite Wait and Other Stories (Koyama Press, 2012).

What People are Saying About This

Actress Lizzy Caplan

DRINKING AT THE MOVIES, Julia Wertz's new Fart Party book, may just be her best work yet. My copy is certainly dog-eared within an inch of its life. She exhibits the same hilariously self-deprecating grumpy grump from her previous books, but DRINKING brings a whole new layer to the Julia Wertz experience. That's right, I said 'the Julia Wertz experience'…which actually sounds more like a carnival ride to be avoided, one that will leave you inexplicably drunk with holes in your clothes. In this book Julia is darker, lugubriously introspective, and dare I say, more vulnerable than in her previous works. Yet she’s still really, really, obscenely funny. There aren't many authors working today who can illustrate the pervasive despair that sometimes likes to crash on your couch in your 20s—but Julia Wertz nails this. In fact, you should probably get copies for your parents and other assorted relatives who like to mumble things like “youth is wasted on the young” when you complain about stuff. Maybe reading DRINKING AT THE MOVIES will kickstart your dumb mom's memory, and she'll remember that being in your 20s is actually kind of lonely. Now I'm depressed. Thanks for nothing, Wertz.
