Ghost World is the story of Enid and Rebecca, teenage friends facing the unwelcome prospect of adulthood, and the uncertain future of their complicated relationship. Clowes conjures a balanced semblance, both tender and objective, of their fragile existence, capturing the mundane thrills and hourly tragedies of a waning adolescence, as he follows a tenuous narrative thread through the fragmented lives of these two fully realised young women.

"For once in a comic story, people are portrayed as they really talk and act. Clowes' pitch is uncannily accurate" * Washington Post *
"A hilarious, melancholy graphic novel" * Newsweek *
"Clowes' remarkable Ghost World might some day become a primer for the next generation of comics writers and artists... Masterfull" * Spin *
"Clowes spells out the realities of teenage angst as powerfully and authentically as Salinger did in Catcher in the Rye for an earlier generation" * Hartford Advocate *
"If ever there was a comic book story meant to be examined by non-comics fans, it's this, a classic in any medium" * The Onion *
