Wilson (Hardback)Daniel Clowes (author)
- In stock online
After his father dies, Wilson, now irrevocably alone, sets out to find his ex-wife with the hope of rekindling their long-dead relationship, and discovers he has a teenage daughter, born after the marriage ended and given up for adoption.
Wilson eventually forces all three to reconnect as a family - a doomed mission that will surely, inevitably backfire.
In his first all-new graphic novel, one of the leading cartoonists of our time, Daniel Clowes, creates a thoroughly engaging, complex and fascinating character study of the modern egotist - outspoken and oblivious to the world around him.
Working in a single-page gag format and drawn in a spectrum of styles, the cartoonist of "Ghost World", "Ice Haven" and "David Boring" gives us his funniest and most deeply affecting novel to date.
