I was the victim of misinformed public library cataloging. This is not a graphic novel. Instead, each chapter opens with a woodcut image of a fly resting somewhere that begins a very short story (1-3 pages) that ranges from embarrassing to gruesome with the overarching thread being "the fly on the wall sees everything you do, good or evil".
