A poignant and witty graphic novel by a leading New Yorker cartoonist, following a millennial’s journey from performing his life to truly connecting with people
“Mr. McPhail’s witty and moving work shows the high stakes of small, everyday connections by affording a glimpse of a time when it’s too late to make them.”—The Wall Street Journal
“A sharply observed, funny, and achingly poignant examination of a subject widely understood yet rarely described, rendered subtle and playful, and made wonderfully new.”—The Paris Review
“The visuals are scrumptious and the yearning for personal connection is deeply relatable…McPhail presents [beats] with style and grace, deftly moving the story along with subtle, impactful visual cues…Gorgeous.”—Kirkus Reviews —
