Waterstones Says

A stunning graphic novel memoir from the singular cartoonist behind The Impending Blindness of Billie Scott, It's Lonely at the Centre of the Earth is a masterly work of self-examination and the urge to create when everything else is falling apart.

Cartoonist Zoe Thorogood records 6 months of her own life as it falls apart in a desperate attempt to put it back together again in the only way she knows how.

It's Lonely At the Centre Of the Earth is an intimate and metanarrative look into the life of a selfish artist who must create for her own survival.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Tragic, funny and disturbing." —Connecticut Public Radio/NPR

Forbes' "Best Graphic Novels of 2022" list    "Thorogood elevates the dark material with her expressive use of the comics medium and the urgency of her voice. One to watch for the 2020s." —Forbes

"Already pushing herself to new limits, Thorogood more than delivers on the promise of her debut. This has the force of a fist punching through the page." —Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"A wondrous achievement as both an autobiographical discussion and as a piece of the comics medium. The skill and ingenuity of her visual storytelling approach is staggering and awe-inspiring. Thorogood’s courageous honesty is supported by her hilarious deadpan humor and then tied all together by her absolutely insane artistic vision. Centre of the Earth is an important work as a discussion of trauma, depression, and the hope that can keep one moving forward. This is an absolute must-read, and without a doubt one of the best comic creations of recent years." —Monkeys Fighting Robots

"Unflinchingly stark and personal." —The Guardian UK

“This is now my favourite graphic novel”

I love the storyline even though it’s autobiographical, so technically the story is still happening . It gives perspective to the mind of the author/artist and comfort to those who can relate. And if they don’t... More
