The Voyeurs (Uncivilized Books)
Acclaimed graphic novelist Gabrielle Bell will discuss and sign her latest work, The Voyeurs. Bell is the immensely talented artist behind Cecil and Jordan in New York and Lucky, and we're eagerly anticipating her new book, a memoir covering a turbulent five years in the author's life.
"The Voyeurs is the work of a mature writer, if not one of the most sincere voices of her literary generation. It's a fun, honest read that spans continents, relationships and life decisions. I loved it." --Chris Ware
"As she watches other people living life, and watches herself watching them, Bell's pen becomes a kind of laser, first illuminating the surface distractions of the world, then scorching them away to reveal a deeper reality that is almost too painful and too beautiful to bear." --Alison Bechdel
Gabrielle Bell’s work has been selected for the 2007, 2009, 2010 and 2011 Houghton-Mifflin Best American Comics and the Yale Anthology of Graphic Fiction, and has been featured in McSweeney’s, The Believer, and Vice magazines. “Cecil and Jordan In New York,” the title story of her most recent book, was adapted for the screen by Bell and director Michel Gondry in the film anthology Tokyo! Her newest book, The Voyeurs, will be in stores September 2012. She lives in Brooklyn.
