A master. Perfect fusion of story and art. Clowes is an auteur. Period. A superb narrator. - Guillermo del Toro

Discover Monica, a wild romp through genre telling the cradle-to-grave story, actually, stories, of an ordinary American life - from the creator of Ghost World

Monica is a dazzling, spectacular tapestry of interconnected narratives that together tell a life story. Abandoned by her free-spirited parents, this eponymous protagonist is a rag-to-riches character who succeeds in clawing her way to the top - only to lose it all in a stroke of bad luck. Monica lives out the rest of her contemplative days in search of her parents, encountering a cast of eccentric characters who help piece together the story of her life.

This graphic novel extravaganza is an unforgettable ode to the many genres that have defined the comics form - from war, romance and horror to crime and the supernatural. Mysterious, uncategorisable and quintessentially Clowesian, here is a multi-layered masterpiece born of a lifetime of inspiration. Monica marks the creative apex of Daniel Clowes' distinguished career, one of the defining voices of the graphic novel boom over the past quarter-century.
