The Alcoholic (Tenth Anniversary Expanded Edition)
Intended for mature audiences
This awkward and agonizing tale of a boozed-up, coked-out, sexually confused, and hopelessly romantic author explores the life of a failing writer who's coming off a doomed romance and searching for hope. Unfortunately, the first place his search takes him is the bottom of a bottle as he careens from one off-kilter encounter to another in search of himself in this hilarious yet heartbreaking graphic novel debut by Jonathan Ames. Ames is the creator of HBO's Bored to Death, Starz's Blunt Talk and the critically acclaimed writer of Wake Up, Sir!, The Extra Man, What's Not to Love?, and You Were Never Really Here, now a film starring Joaquin Phoenix.
o Featuring gritty, yet poignant artwork by Emmy Award-winning artist Dean Haspiel (The Quitter, The Red Hook).
o Features a new prose piece by Jonathan Ames expanding on the story material, as well as a special behind-the-scenes artist section!
o For mature readers.
