About the Author

Daniel Clowes is a celebrated graphic novelist, Academy-Award nominated screenwriter, and frequent cover artist for The New Yorker. He is a multi-Harvey, Eisner, and Ignatz Award Winner, and his papers have been acquired by the University of Chicago library. His most recent book, Patience, has been translated into nineteen languages, and his books and comics have won numerous awards, including a PEN America Literary Award and over a dozen Harvey and Eisner Awards. As a screenwriter, he has been nominated for an Academy Award and written the films Ghost World (with Terry Zwigoff), Art School Confidential, and Wilson. A retrospective of his work, Modern Cartoonist, debuted in 2012, appearing at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago, the Oakland Museum, and the Wexner Center. He lives in Oakland, California, with his wife and son.

Reviews

The appeal of Daniel Clowes' breakout graphic novel lies not from what could be predictable plotting, but from its engaging character work. It is the relationship between outsider teens Enid and Rebecca that holds readers in its hilariously cynical sway from panel one.
Ranked #6 of The 20 Best Graphic Novels of the Decade (2009).
Ranked #10 of "The 25 Greatest Gen X Books of All Time" (2009).
The most readable comic of the year.--"Best of 2000"
Ghost World gets better every time I read it, and I've read it hundreds of times. It still frightens me a little how well Daniel Clowes managed to nail the teen-girl brain.--Alexandra Molotkow
