Other People : Days of the Bagnold Summer & Driving Short Distances
by Joff Winterhart


Overview - Collecting the first two graphic novels from "one of the most talented graphic novelists in the UK" (Zadie Smith), Other People brings Joff Winterhart and his penchant for endearing, peculiar couples to the US for the first time.

Evocatively wrought and gorgeously illustrated, Other People collects Days of the Bagnold Summer and Driving Short Distances, first published in the UK to wide acclaim. In Bagnold Summer--which The Observer proclaimed "graphic novel of the year," and which received a Costa Award nomination for best novel--a teenager spends a long summer with his mother, much to his disappointment. Capturing the dynamics of family and growing up, Winterhart captures the ennui, pathos, and affection of the mother-son relationship.

In Driving Short Distances--which Zadie Smith declared "created an unforgettable central player, Keith Nutt, who deserves to join Keith Talent in the short but potent list of great British literary Keiths; he is an unforgettable character, beautifully drawn and exquisitely written"--Sam needs a job and purpose, so begins a apprenticeship of sorts in the passenger side of Keith's car. As Sam learns something about the self-styled big-man Keith, and the humility of everyday living, Winterhat's pen turns ordinary life into a tableau poignant and comedic.
