JONATHAN AMES

The Alcoholic (DC Comics)

Jonathan Ames' acclaimed novels and essays have drawn comparisons across the literary spectrum, from David Sedaris to F. Scott Fitzgerald, from Woody Allen to P.G. Wodehouse; his abilities as a performer have made him a favorite of the McSweeney's crowd and earned him repeat appearances on The Late Show with David Letterman. Now, with his graphic novel debut, Ames creates a vivid, intoxicating and loosely autobiographical look at a tumultuous and troubled life.

Jonathan A. was your average high school student-good grades, good athlete-but he had a secret. Every weekend Jonathan A. became a binge drinker.
Dramatically illustrated by acclaimed New York City-based artist Dean Haspiel, THE ALCOHOLIC is a hard hitting look at the realities of alcoholism, friendship, rehab, sexual escapades, obsession, tragedy, escape, death, and the struggle to keep going.
