From The Diary of Anaïs Nin to The Wizard of Oz to Infinite Jest, The Graphic Canon Volume 3: From Heart of Darkness to Hemingway to Infinite Jest (Seven Stories Press) is a garden of literary and visual delights that wondrously illustrates the arc of twentieth-century literature in diverse adaptations by over 80 graphic artists. Series editor Russ Kick revisits his experience assembling the three total volumes of The Graphic Canon over an industrious three-year period, and talks about the series' perfectly pitched combination of the populist and the highbrow.
