Stock Description, May Not Reflect Item

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."
