The Loneliness of the Long-Distance Cartoonist, by Adrian Tomine

Staff Pick

The latest from Tomine is a memoir-in-vignettes exploring the most embarrassing and cringe-inducing moments of his life as an artist. From a reading at an empty bookstore to moments of mistaken self-importance to disastrous interviews, Tomine mines his life for hilarious anecdotes that shine a spotlight on the less charming aspects of creative life. However, it is in the tender and heartwarming scenes of life with his wife and children that Tomine's mastery really shows, demonstrating why he's one of this medium's true explorers of the quotidian.
