DESCRIPTION :
Written by Jonathan Ames Art and cover by Dean Haspiel "Hysterically funny and gut-wrenchingly dramatic...graphic lit at it's best." - WIZARD MAGAZINE "Painfully honest, shockingly revealing and totally riveting." - Blair Butler, G4TV "An engaging graphic novel . . . Unflinching . . . Powerful." - THE NEW YORK TIMES "Tender, funny and heartbreaking." - PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER Jonathan A. is a boozed-up, coked-out, sexually confused, hopelessly romantic and, of course, entirely fictional novelist who bears only a coincidental resemblance to real-life writer Jonathan Ames, critically acclaimed author of Wake Up, Sir!, The Extra Man and What's Not to Love? For the fictional Jonathan, writing and drinking come easy. The hard parts of life are love and hope. From a touching relationship between Jonathan and his aging great aunt, to an inebriated evening with an amorous, octogenarian dwarf, Ames's first original graphic novel, with gritty, poignant art by Dean Haspiel (THE QUITTER), tells a story about how our lives fall to pieces and the enduring human struggle to put things back together again.
