Waterstones Says

One of the most celebrated contemporary cartoonists, Adrian Tomine has been lauded for his ongoing comic book series Optic Nerve as well as his perceptive, pithy work for The New Yorker. The Loneliness of the Long-Distance Cartoonist gathers a collection of autobiographical sketches which recount his life, career and increasing fame with wry wit and great intelligence.

The comics legend's first new book since his 2015 bestseller Killing and Dying.

Through a series of exquisitely observed autobiographical sketches, Adrian Tomine explores his life - from an early moment on the playground being bullied, to a more recent experience, lying on a gurney in the hospital, and having the nurse say 'Hey! You're that cartoonist!'

Self-deprecating, honest, and above all else, humorous, Tomine mines his conflicted relationship with comics and writing, and people at large, and once again animates the absurdities of modern life and how we choose to live it.

“A Fantastic Portrait of the Artist”

This illustrated account of Tomine's fragile ego and insecurities is superbly humanising, deftly controlled and wry throughout. Another corker from a graphic novelist at the top of his game. A joy to read, and... More
