Ghost World

Publisher: Jonathan Cape

Daniel Clowes is able to tell brilliant stories of stunted growth and wanting to be a child forever but dealing with the world around you and its grotesque circus of disgusting yet similarly childlike characters.

This is an examination of the lives of two recent high school graduates from the advantaged perch of a constant and undetectable eavesdropper, with the shaky detachment of a scientist who has grown fond of the prize microbes in his petri dish.
