SETH discusses his new graphic novel CLYDE FANS, with SCOTT TIMBERG

Clyde Fans (Drawn + Quarterly)

Join acclaimed cartoonist Seth for a discussion and book signing to launch Clyde Fans, his highly-anticipated masterpiece. Clyde Fans follows Abe and Simon Matchcard, two brothers whose lives are defined by their doomed family business, selling oscillating fans in a world switching to air conditioning. Seth’s incisive storytelling and gorgeous urban landscapes are showcased in this epic yet intimate time capsule of the mid-century capitalist dream. 

Seth is a cartoonist, illustrator, and book designer. He has published a dozen graphic novels with Drawn & Quarterly, including George Sprott, It’s A Good Life, If You Don’t Weaken, and Wimbledon Green. His comics have also appeared in the New York Times Magazine, Best American Comics, and McSweeneys Quarterly. His illustrations have appeared in numerous publications including on the cover of the New Yorker. He is Lemony Snicket’s partner for the series All the Wrong Questions. In 2014 he was the subject of a National Film Board documentary entitled Seth’s Dominion. Seth lives in Guelph with his wife Tania and two cats in a house he has named Inkwell’s End.

Scott Timberg is a Los Angeles-based arts and culture journalist who has written for the Los Angeles Times, Salon, The New York Times and The Guardian. He’s the author of the 2015 book Culture Crash: The Killing of the Creative Class, and runs the ArtsJournal blog CultureCrash. He is currently working on a book called Beeswing: Britain, Folk Rock, and the End of the ‘60s with the guitarist Richard Thompson.
