Gahan : Out Theregahanwilson

 

A collection by the one-and-only Gahan Wilson, Out There (Fantagraphics, July 3, 2015).  As anyone who visits this site knows, Mr. Wilson was recently the subject of a documentary film by Steven-Charles Jaffe, Born Dead, Still Weird

 

 

6fc3355abcFrom Marisa Acocella Marchetto, the author of the hugely popular Cancer Vixen, Ann Tenna (Knopf, September 1, 2015). Sorry, no cover image yet.

A review provided by the publisher:

“I am in awe: this is the work of a master craftsman at the top of her game. Ann Tenna is a great work of art, its storytelling fabulous and fresh. Marisa Acocella Marchetto defines our moment with social commentary that’s sharp, witty, and wise. Here is a universe of characters that will amaze and enchant you—a winning narrative that is timely, bold, and brilliant. Brava Marisa!” —Adriana Trigiani, author of Big Stone Gap and The Shoemaker’s Wife

 

Litera.RozChastRoz:clockFrom Roz Chast, author of the acclaimed memoir Can’t We Talk About Something More Pleasant, Around the Clock! (Atheneum Books for Young Readers, January 13, 2015).

A review provided by the publisher:
“New Yorker cartoonist Chast presents a zany, hour-by-hour look at the activities of 23 different kids…the off-the-wall mayhem of Chast’s illustrations is what makes this quirky offering stand out…good, ridiculous fun, and future fans of alternative comic artists will eat this one right up.” (School Library Journal, January 2015)

A review provided by the publisher:

“In his poetically illustrated memoir, Bruce Eric Kaplan manages to capture all that is beautiful, hilarious and painful about growing up human. He will make you laugh with recognition, cry with nostalgia and longing, and somehow wish you were growing up bored in New Jersey.”
