From the Publisher
This first book from Chicago author Chris Ware is a
pleasantly-decorated view at a lonely and emotionally-impaired
"everyman" (Jimmy Corrigan: The Smartest Kid on Earth),
who is provided, at age 36, the opportunity to meet his father for
the first time. An improvisatory romance which gingerly deports
itself between 1890''s Chicago and 1980''s small town Michigan, the
reader is helped along by thousands of colored illustrations and
diagrams, which, when read rapidly in sequence, provide a
convincing illusion of life and movement. The bulk of the work is
supported by fold-out instructions, an index, paper cut-outs, and a
brief apology, all of which concrete to form a rich portrait of a
man stunted by a paralyzing fear of being disliked.
