ALEXANDER THEROUX AT THE STRAND FEB, 5th:

LAURA WARHOLIC OR, THE SEXUAL INTELLECTUAL

 

Fantagraphics Books and The Strand Bookstore are proud to announce a rare appearance and reading by National Book Award nominee ALEXANDER THEROUX, promoting his first novel in nearly twenty years, the just-released LAURA WARHOLIC OR, THE SEXUAL INTELLECTUAL.

 

“Brilliantly written.” — NORMAN MAILER

 

Listing Information:


WHEN: Tues., Feb. 5th, 7:00PM

WHERE: Strand Bookstore, 2nd Fl.

828 Broadway @ 12th

New York, NY 10003

212.660.6643

 

In LAURA WARHOLIC, Theroux returns with a compendious satire, a bold and inquisitorial, circuit-breaking examination of love and hate, of rejection and forgiveness, of trust and romantic disappointment, of the terrors of contemporary life. Eugene Eyestones, an erudite sex columnist for a Boston cultural magazine, becomes enmeshed in the messy life of a would-be artist named Laura Warholic, who, repulsing and fascinating him at the same time, becomes a mirror in which he not only sees himself but through which he is forced to face his own demons. Horrifying and hilarious, damning and demanding, Laura Warholic in its uncompromising power will surely be one of the most talked-about novels of the season, and for years to come.

 

Alexander Theroux is the author of three highly regarded novels—Three Wogs, Darconville’s Cat, and An Adultery—and of several books of essays, fables, and poetry. He lives in West Barnstable, Massachusetts, with his wife, artist Sarah Son.

 

“A work that screams ‘Literary Event’.” — BOOKLIST

 

“Theroux’s first novel in 20 years is as smart, funny, outlandish, angry and moving as we expect, and more accessibly riveting than we dreamed.” — GARY GIDDINS

 

HARDCOVER • 888 pp. • ISBN 978-1-56097-798-8 • $29.95

MOME Interview 2: Gabrielle Bell
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under MomeGabrielle Bell 4 Feb 2008 2:47 PM

Illustration by Gabrielle Bell

Presenting the second MOME interview to be presented on Fantagraphics.com in its entirety: Gabrielle Bell, from MOME Vol. 2:

gary groth: Do you remember a time or a period when you made a decision... "This is what I want to do?"

gabrielle bell: Yes. I was traveling at the time. I was in Texas and I was just wandering through a comic book store. There were some instructions on how to become a comic artist. It was very simple — very, very easy. But actually, it was before that I decided to be a cartoonist, maybe a couple of weeks before. It was pretty organic.

Read on!  

Oh, man.

More info HERE. This book is the reason our Dal Tokyo collection is going to be delayed about a year (to Spring '09 or so). Couldn't imagine a better reason.

Jeremy Eaton wrote up the big Crumb show here in town for the Beacon Hill News. Nice piece, better than any of the major media coverage I've seen.
