“Rendered in fluid, magical brushwork tinted in the colors of a sunrise and filled with mysterious shadows and crannies… this enchanting solo effort reveals even greater depths to Powell’s gift for visual storytelling and creating appealing, human characters.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review)
A lover’s dream becomes a parent’s nightmare in the astonishing new graphic novel from Nate Powell, National Book Award-winning artist of the March trilogy.
As the sun sets on the 1970s, the spirit of the Love Generation still lingers in one “intentional community” high in the Ozarks. But what’s missing?
Under impossibly close scrutiny, two families wrestle with long-repressed secrets… while deep within those Arkansas hills, something monstrous stirs, ready to feast on village whispers.
In his triumphant return to solo cartooning, #1 New York Times bestseller Nate Powell presents a haunting tale of intimacy, guilt, and collective amnesia.
Nate Powell (b. 1978, Little Rock, Arkansas) began self-publishing at age 14 and graduated from School of Visual Arts in 2000. He is the first cartoonist ever to win the National Book Award.
His work includes the new graphic novel Come Again and civil rights icon John Lewis’ graphic memoir trilogy March, as well as You Don’t Say, Any Empire, Swallow Me Whole, The Silence Of Our Friends, The Year Of The Beasts, and Rick Riordan’s The Lost Hero.
Powell’s work has received a Robert F. Kennedy Book Award, three Eisner Awards, the Michael L. Printz Award, four YALSA Great Graphic Novels For Teens selections, the Walter Dean Myers Award, and is a two-time finalist for the Los Angeles Times Book Prize. He has discussed his work at the United Nations, as well as on MSNBC’s The Rachel Maddow Show and CNN.
He lives in Bloomington, Indiana.
