Jimmy Corrigan has rightly been hailed as the greatest graphic novel ever to be published. It won the Guardian First Book Award 2001, the first graphic novel to win a major British literary prize. It is the tragic autobiography of an office dogsbody in Chicago who one day meets the father who abandoned him as a child. With a subtle, complex and moving story and the drawings that are as simple and original as they are strikingly beautiful, Jimmy Corrigan is a book unlike any other and certainly not to be missed.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Jimmy Corrigan is certainly the greatest thing in strip cartoons since Krazy Kat and Little Nemo" -- Raymond Briggs
"Ware is the most versatile and innovative artist the medium has known - arguably the greatest achievement of the form ever" -- Dave Eggers * New York Times Book Review *
"This new book seems to be another milestone in the demonstration of what comics can be" -- Art Spiegelman, author of Maus
"Chris Ware has produced a book as beautiful as any published this year, but also one which challenges us to think again about what literature is and where it is going" -- Claire Armitstead * Guardian *
"Perhaps best read in a single sitting, Jimmy Corrigan is perceptive, poetic, and sometimes profound, generously rewarding the absorption it requires" * Independent *
