about

Described by the Detroit Metro Times as "accessible as a good Woody Allen film," this popular European series is collected in one volume for the first time in English.When Monsieur Jean first appeared on the pages of Drawn & Quarterly, the series instantly drew enthusiastic reviews from readers. Get a Life follows one man's life through his bachelorhood in his 20s and 30s to impending responsibilities of marriage, kids and deadlines from his publisher.Written with a sophisticated wit and charm and drawn in clear-line New Yorker style, Get a Life promises to be one of D&Q's best books of the year.
Phillipe Dupuy and Charles Berberian have worked together for 20 years, and Monsieur Jean is their most successful character. Their work appears regularly in The New Yorker.
