Chris Ware: Jimmy Corrigan
Listen to/Watch entire show:
Bookworm's nominee for the past year's most interesting novel is a comic book! Chris Ware's Jimmy Corrigan: The Smartest Kid on Earth (Pantheon) is a vast complex graphic novel with Faulknerian breadth, Flaubertian subtlety and Joycean indirection-with dialogue bubbles and full-color panels.
