Details

In an ongoing quest to find human connection, he badgers friend and stranger alike into a series of one-sided conversations, punctuating his own lofty discussions with a brutally honest, self-negating sense of humor. 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.

The original graphic novel, WILSON, by award-winning cartoonist, Oscar-nominated screenwriter and New Yorker illustrator Daniel Clowes. WILSON is the author's first novel not to be originally serialized in his seminal comic book series, Eightball.

Chris Oliveros, Drawn & Quarterly Publisher and Editor-in-Chief, says "WILSON is signature Clowes as the cartooning is seamless. It is funny, poignant and leaves an indelible impression on the reader. Wilson will take his place right alongside Enid Coleslaw, David Boring, and Dan Pussey."

One of the most important cartoonists of our time, Clowes has been hailed as a "bona-fide cult hero" by The New Yorker and the "country's premier underground cartoonist" by Newsweek.

In WILSON, Clowes creates a thoroughly engaging, complex and fascinating portrait of the modern egoist-outspoken and oblivious to those around him, but who sincerely wants to find his place in the world. 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.
