Pantheon Graphic Novels: Jimmy Corrigan: The Smartest Kid on Earth. Jimmy Corrigan - Der Klügste Junge der Welt, englische Ausgabe - hardcover

2011, ISBN: 9780375404535

[ED: Buch, gebundene Ausgabe], [PU: Knopf, N.Y. Pantheon Books, N.Y. Random House US], KURZE BESCHREIBUNG/ANMERKUNGEN: Jimmy Corrigan is a lonely man in his 30s with no self-confidence. A blunt and unsentimental account of how Jimmy came to be the man he is. AUSFÜHRLICHERE BESCHREIBUNG: This first book from Chicago author Chris Ware is a pleasantly-decorated view at a lonely and emotionally-impaired "everyman" ( Jimmy Corrigan: The Smartest Kid on Earth ), who is provided, at age 36, the opportunity to meet his father for the first time. An improvisatory romance which gingerly deports itself between 1890's Chicago and 1980's small town Michigan, the reader is helped along by thousands of colored illustrations and diagrams, which, when read rapidly in sequence, provide a convincing illusion of life and movement. The bulk of the work is supported by fold-out instructions, an index, paper cut-outs, and a brief apology, all of which concrete to form a rich portrait of a man stunted by a paralyzing fear of being disliked. BUCHBESPRECHUNG: "This haunting and unshakable book will change the way you look at your world. Ware captures landscapes made to flatten emotion-a clinic shrouded in snow, a sterile apartment complex-and yet shows the reader the meaning and even beauty in every glimpse from a highway, every snippet of small talk." - Time magazine " Jimmy Corrigan pushes the form of comics into unexpected formal and emotional territory." - Chicago Tribune "Graphically inventive, wonderfully realized . . . [ Jimmy Corrigan ] is wonderfully illustrated in full color, and Ware's spare, iconic drawing style can render vivid architectural complexity or movingly capture the stark despondency of an unloved child." - Publishers Weekly (starred review) "Ware's use of words is sparing, and at times maudlin. But the real joy is his art. It's stunning. In terms of attention to detail, graceful use of color, and overall design-Ware has no peer. And while each panel is relentlessly polished-never an errant line or lazily rendered image-his drawings, somehow, remain delicate and achingly lyrical." -Dave Eggers, The New York Times Book Review, [SC: 0.00], Neuware, gewerbliches Angebot, H: 198mm, B: 129mm, T: 39mm, [GW: 1108g]
