Ghost World

Ghost World is the story of Enid and Rebecca, teenage friends facing the unwelcome prospect of adulthood, and the uncertain future of their complicated relationship. Clowes conjures a balanced semblance, both tender and objective, of their fragile existence, capturing the mundane thrills and hourly tragedies of a waning adolescence, as he follows a tenuous narrative thread through the fragmented lives of these two fully realised young women.

Daniel Clowes was born in 1961. He is the creator of the comic books Eightball, Ghost World, which was made into a film by the director Terry Zwigoff, David Boring, and Ice Haven. His adaptation of his own Ghost World graphic novel for the screen earned him an Oscar nomination. A regular contributor to the New Yorker, McSweeney's, and The Best American Comics, he lives in California with his wife.


"For once in a comic story, people are portrayed as they really talk and act. Clowes' pitch is uncannily accurate" * Washington Post * "A hilarious, melancholy graphic novel" * Newsweek * "Clowes' remarkable Ghost World might some day become a primer for the next generation of comics writers and artists... Masterfull" * Spin * "Clowes spells out the realities of teenage angst as powerfully and authentically as Salinger did in Catcher in the Rye for an earlier generation" * Hartford Advocate * "If ever there was a comic book story meant to be examined by non-comics fans, it's this, a classic in any medium" * The Onion *
