Editorial Reviews:
Review:

"Tomine's realism has earned him comparisons to such respected prose writers as Alice Munro and Raymond Carver."

Peter Terzian, Los Angeles Times, Sept. 2, 2007

Review:

"The author is an expert at hooking the reader without tricks or obvious effort, and you'll be tempted to buzz through SHORTCOMINGS in an hour. But you'll want to slow down to take in the detailed black-and-white panels that casually document the way we live now."

Jim Windolf, New York Times, 11/11/2007

Book Description: Drawn and Quarterly, Canada, 2007. Hardback. Book Condition: New. 235 x 165 mm. Brand New Book. FROM THE PREEMINENT CARTOONIST OF HIS GENERATION, THE MOST ANTICIPATED GRAPHIC NOVEL OF 2007 Shortcomings, Adrian Tomine s first long-form graphic novel, is the story of Ben Tanaka, a confused, obsessive Japanese American male in his late twenties, and his cross-country search for contentment (or at least the perfect girl). Along the way, Tomine tackles modern culture, sexual mores, and racial politics with brutal honesty and lacerating, irreverent humor, while deftly bringing to life a cast of painfully real antihero characters. A frequent contributor to The New Yorker, Tomine has acquired a cultlike fan following and has earned status as one of the most widely acclaimed cartoonists of our time. Shortcomings was serialized in Tomine s iconic comic book series Optic Nerve and was excerpted in McSweeney s Quarterly Concern #13. Bookseller Inventory # AAS9781897299166
