Shortcomings
Tomine, Adrian
Adult Fiction TOMINE

Comments  Summary  Reviews  Author Notes

Summary: From the pre-eminent cartoonist of his generation comes the most anticipated graphic novel of 2007. Adrian Tomine's first long-form graphic novel is the story of a confused, obsessive Japanese-American male in his late 20s and his cross-country search for contentment--or at least the perfect girl. Tomine tackles modern culture, sexual mores and racial politics with brutal honesty and lacerating, irreverent humour, while deftly bringing to life a cast of painfully real antihero characters."Adrian Tomine ... may be the best prose writer of the bunch. His young people, falling in and out of relationships, paralyzed by shyness and self-consciousness ... take on a certain dignity and individuality." (Charles McGrath, New York Times Magazine)
