The Fate of the Artist (Paperback)Eddie Campbell (author)
Paperback 192 Pages / Published: 02/05/2006
- Not available
In this pseudo-autobiography, the subject of the memoir has vanished without a trace. Through six separate threads, each one typographically and stylistically distinct, a private investigator tries to discover the artists' fate through false trails, family and daily life re-enactments and even an imaginary Sunday comic strip. As the narrative threads intersect and collide in surprising ways, the reader is carried along on a fantastic journey through the life of the artist. A master comics artist, Eddie Campbell offers a complex, caustic and surprising meditation on balancing the lonely life of the artist with the demands of everyday life.
