This long-awaited new graphic novel from Daniel
Clowes (Ghost World and Patience) is a genre-bending
thriller from one of the most assured storytellers of all
time.
Monica is a series of interconnected narratives that collectively tell
the life story - actually, stories - of its title character. Clowes calls
upon a lifetime of inspiration to create the most complex and personal
graphic novel of his distinguished career. Rich with visual
detail, an impeccable ear for language and dialogue, and thrilling
twists, Monica is a multilayered masterpiece in comics form that
alludes to many of the genres that have defined the medium - war,
romance, horror, crime, the supernatural, etc. - but in a mysterious,
uncategorizable, and quintessentially Clowesian way that rewards
multiple readings.
Five years in the making, Monica marks the apex of creativity
from one of the defining voices of the graphic novel
boom over the past quarter-century. A new book from Clowes
is always a huge event in comics and literary circles; Monica will be the biggest
literary event of 2023.
Daniel Clowes is a Harvey, Eisner, Ignatz, and PEN America Literary Award Winner
whose comics and graphic novels have been translated into over 20 languages
worldwide. He is also an Academy Award nominated screenwriter (for Ghost World),
and retrospectives of his work have appeared at the Museum of Contemporary Art in
Chicago, the Oakland Museum, and the Wexner Center in Columbus, OH. He lives
in Oakland, California, with his wife and son.
