Tim Lane, one of St. Louis’ most influential & popular indie cartoonist, will be hosting a special release party for his newest Fantagraphics book, The Lonesome Go, at Star Clipper on Saturday, November 1st at 7:00 PM. Come meet Tim Lane and get an autographed copy of The Lonesome Go. Tim will also be hosting a carousel film connected to his new graphic novel and the short film will be accompanied with a live musical performance.
About The Lonesome Go:
Tim Lane continues his exploration of the Great American Mythological Drama that began with his first book, the critically acclaimed Abandoned Cars. This collection of stories is broadly linked together by the experience of wandering — both literally and figuratively. With compelling verisimilitude, the lives of his characters are depicted by way of rich mixtures of obscure myths and documented facts, dreams and reality, belief and disbelief, throughout a haunted landscape populated by the ghosts of a complex and rich fictional tapestry. You’ll witness a young man’s dubious quest to discover the myth of the protagonist from an obscure vintage comic strip; encounter sociopathic hobos in boxcars and misled young men whose facial pores sprout worms and who throw up babies into gas station toilets; visit modern “Hoovervilles”; and experience the life and death of an undocumented immigrant bookstore doorman, former boxer, and expert hustler.
