reading & booksigning for Shortcomings
Wednesday, November 14 at 7 pm
From one of the finest cartoonists of his generation comes one of the most anticipated graphic novels of 2007. Shortcomings (hardback, $19.95), Adrian Tomine’s first long-form graphic novel, is the story of Ben Tanaka, a confused, obsessive, Japanese American male in his late twenties, and his cross-country search for contentment (or at least the perfect girl). Don’t miss this special event, which will feature Tomine in conversation with novelist Glen David Gold (author of Carter Beats the Devil).
Adrian Tomine is a graduate of U.C. Berkeley and lives in Brooklyn, New York. His illustrations have appeared in myriad publications, including Esquire and Rolling Stone, and his stories have appeared in The Best American Nonrequired Reading and An Anthology of Graphic Fiction, Cartoons, and True Stories. A frequent contributor to The New Yorker, Tomine has acquired a cult following which has earned him a status as one of the most widely acclaimed cartoonists of our time.
