about

On a beautiful Sunday afternoon, an incident takes place in a North London park. Chris is accidentally bitten by an excited dog and aims a defensive kick at it. The owner, well-known polemicist Ivan Grubb, takes to his blog to express his outrage, spinning the story to fit happily within his own narrative. When Ivan and Chris relate the event to their children, they are surprised and confused by the strength of feeling their reactions provoke. The Park is a delicate examination of how anger, repression, and powerlessness can overwhelm even the most logical and well-intentioned person amid the confusion of the modern world.
Oscar Zarate is a prize-winning author and illus­trator whose work includes A Small Killing (with Alan Moore), Geoffrey the Tube Train and the Fat Comedian, and an adaptation of Marlowe's Dr. Faustus. Zarate worked with Carlos Sampayo on Trois Artistes à Paris, Fly Blues, and La Faille. He lives in London.

Editorial Reviews

“A rich narrative that is as satisfyingly novelistic as it is gorgeously graphic, thanks to the colorful, painterly art.”
