The astonishing graphic novel that became a cult classic and a major movie.
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 *
