really liked it
bookshelves: graphic-novel
Read in January, 2009

Having seen the movie, and having read The Quitter, I'm interested to dig into this one and see what it's like.

Just finished it--a good read. Really made me wonder how much of my life passes me by--I'm not a writer, but besides that, my life is no less interesting, I suppose, than Harvey's in a lot of ways. He's written so many stories about all of these little encounters he's had with people, and it just makes me wonder how many interactions I've had that might be notable in some way that I'm partially or entirely forgotten along the way.

Anyway, it's a um, good read...interesting to see how the various artists draw him and to see the similar stories illustrated in very different ways. I look forward to picking up the other books he's put out.
