Sinopsis:

A one-mouse theater of the absurd. Quimby the Mouse is the second book from Chris Ware; his first book, Jimmy Corrigan (Pantheon, 2000), has been widely acclaimed as one of the medium's finest graphic novels in history and is currently in a fourth hardcover printing.

Cleverly appropriated old-fashioned animation imagery and advertising styles of the 1920s and 1930s are put to use in Quimby at the service of modern vignettes of angst and existentialism. As this cartoon silhouette of a mouse ignominiously suffers at every turn, the spaces between the panels create despair and a Beckett-like rhythm of hope deceived and deferred (but never quite extinguished), buoying Quimby from page to page.

Like Ware's first book, Quimby is saturated with Ware's genius, including consistently amazing graphics, insanely perfectionist production values, cut-out-and-assemble paper projects, and the formal complexity of his narratives that have earned him the reputation as one of the most prodigious artists of his generation.

About the Author:

Chris Ware is the creator of the ongoing comic book series The ACME Novelty Library. He is the only cartoonist in history to garner all four major cartooning awards (the Harvey, Eisner, Ignatz and Reuben), and Jimmy Corrigan, his previous book, won The Guardian newspaper's 2001 First Book Prize. Ware lives in Chicago with his wife, Marnie.
