Book of Interest: Seth’s “Clyde Fans”

Out on bookstore shelves on April 30th from Drawn & Quarterly, Seth’s latest, Clyde Fans.  In the meantime, here’s a Publisher’s Weekly piece about it. Seth (Gregory Gallant) began contributing to The New Yorker in 2002.  Below, right, one of his covers.

Further recommended reading: Seth’s 1996 It’s A Good Life If You Don’t Weaken.

The PW article says about it: “Seth’s first graphic novel…seemed to be a memoir of the author’s attempts to track down a New Yorker cartoonist who had a brief flash of success in the ’40s—but the whole thing was fiction.”
