Published in The New Yorker and McSweeney's and lauded by Nick Hornby for his "writer's eye for the truth," Adrian Tomine started young by self-publishing his comics anthology Optic Nerve as a teenager in Sacramento. Nearly two decades later, his penetrating, crisply drawn portraits of young adults' longing and alienation have made him one of America's most acclaimed graphic novelists.
In conversation with Toby Litt on his first UK appearance, Tomine discusses his recent works, Shortcomings and Summer Blonde, and the collected manga of Yoshihiro Tatsumi, which he is editing.
Followed by book signing.
Presented by Comica, supported by Faber & Faber and The Angoulême International Comics Festival.
Toby Litt's new novel, Journey into Space, will be published in March by Hamish Hamilton.
