Graphic Memoirist - Jeffrey Brown


From his self-published debut, Clumsy, to his latest work, Funny Misshapen Body, Chicago based Jeffrey Brown has been documenting his life in graphic novel form. Brown is not at all shy about revealing his sensitive side, putting forth extremely intimate details of his inadequacies, personal relationships, successes and failures. This same intimacy can make things borderline awkward to read at times - making one wonder if he should really be spilling his guts so completely. That said, his work is also full of warmth and humor and his quick and scruffy drawing style fits well with the narrative. Highly recommended, especially to those in their 20's and 30's. Check catalog for availability.
