TONIGHT! Graphic Novel Book Club - Beverly by Nick Drnaso

Each month we host a Graphic Novel Book Club meeting, open to all, during which we hang out and informally discuss a featured graphic novel. Our pick for February is Beverly by Nick Drnaso. We will meet at Librairie Drawn & Quarterly on Wednesday, February 10th at 7:00 p.m.

Nick Drnaso’s Beverly captures such a recognizable, raw feeling of the “now” that if it was a film Drnaso would be heralded as a “stunning new directorial voice.” If it was a novel, he would be a “literary sensation.” But Beverly’s chilled windowpane views into the fogged American psyche are not cartoon copies of film or literature. They’re something completely new. Chris Ware, author of Building Stories

Discussion will be hosted by D+Q Managing Editor Tracy Hurren. There will be refreshments and collective insight!

The modern lost souls of BEVERLY struggle with sexual anxieties that are just barely repressed and social insecurities that undermine every word they speak. Time passes, bodies change sizes, realities blur with fantasies, truths disintegrate, childhood comforts turn uncomfortable. Again and again, the civilized fa├žades of Nick Drnaso’s pitch-perfect suburban landscapes crack in the face of violence and quiet brutality. Drnaso's debut graphic novel leaves you haunted and squirming and longing for more.

We offer you a 20% discount on BEVERLY from now until the meeting date.
