When Miko moves temporarily to live and study in New York she leaves behind behind Ben, a confused, obsessive, 30-year-old theatre manager who finds himself desperately trying to answer the big questions. But aided only by his promiscuous friend Alice, and spending increasing time with his new employee Autumn, things only seem to get more confusing. Does he know what he wants? Is he everything Miko accuses him of? Should he follow her to New York?
A painful, charming and stunningly illustrated look at the realities of modern relationships, Shortcomings is one of the most brilliantly subtle, witty and moving graphic novels around.
