Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:

Ben Tanaka, a confused, obsessive, twenty-something Japanese American, embarks on a cross-country search for contentment--or the perfect girl--in a graphic novel that tackles modern culture, sexual mores, and racial politics with honesty and humor. Reprint.


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
