It is my delight to invite you to London-based cartoonist Tom Gauld's book launch for his D+Q book Goliath. Tom Gauld, as well as being a great guy to work on a book with, is also insanely talented, funny, and sharp as a tack. He'll be giving a presentation about his work and signing books, so please, don't miss this one!
Tom Gauld's new book Goliath (preview here) tells the biblical story we're all familiar with, but this time we're looking at it from the Philistines' side of the Valley of Elah. And Goliath isn't much of a fighter, just some guy who happened to be awful big.
Or as the infinitely-more-eloquent Chris Adrian (author of The Great Night and The Children's Hospital) puts it:
"Goliath is as sad and earnest as its hero is tall. In words and images of spare and striking beauty, Tom Gauld describes a world and a life where just showing up is half the misery, and you don't actually have to do anything wrong to merit the wrath of an angry God."
Come out! Wednesday May 2nd, 7 pm, Librairie D+Q (211 Bernard O.). A talk followed by a signing and refreshments.
