Chris Ware's New Graphic Novel Building Stories
The brilliant Chris Ware’s new graphic novel, Building Stories, was in the works for ten years and well worth the wait. Ware tells American tragedy in a way that’s comparable to the likes of Jonathan Franzen. His honest and sometimes heart breaking look at life in this country translates beautifully into this illustrated novel form. The graphic novel in a box—a set containing of 14 different parts—is proof that the printed book can’t be completely eliminated from the earth.
