Overview

Part graphic novel, part journal, this tale follows one young man`s embarrassing and hilarious journey to literary awareness. Jonny lives and works in a suburban strip mall but dreams of being a writer. He already possesses most of the elements needed to realize his dream?a supportive girlfriend, an active imagination, and an abundance of subject matter?but nonetheless finds his literary pursuits impeded by his own relentless stupidity. From big-box capitalism to growing up in the 21st century, Jonny`s irreverent musings are captivating and deceivingly wise.
