Daniel Clowes @ Quimby's, Printer's Row Lit Fest


You have two chances to check out Ghost World author/artist Daniel Clowes this weekend. He'll be at Quimby's Saturday for a book signing and appearing at the Printers Row Lit Fest on Sunday. His latest book is Wilson, the story of a middle-aged misanthrope searching to reconnect with the ex-wife who's become a prostitute since leaving him, and their daughter, put up for adoption years earlier. The New York Times says "[Clowes has] explored the tedium and mystery of contemporary American life with more wit and insight than most novelists or filmmakers." Author signing at Quimby's, 1854 W. North Ave., Saturday, June 12 at 7pm; in conversation with film critic Ray Pride at the Printers Row Lit Fest, Center Stage, Sunday, June 13 at 11am.
