Originally published in 1998, Sleepwalk and Other Stories represents the beginning of Adrian Tomine's remarkable career, collecting the sixteen earliest stories from his acclaimed Optic Nerve comic series — concise, haunting tales of modern life. This is the work that garnered Tomine a comics-industry Harvey Award for Best New Talent and led Wired magazine to declare, "Tomine has rocketed to prominence among America's young cartoonists.'"
Praise for Sleepwalk and Other Stories
Tomine is a master of pseudorealistic stories in the tradition of Raymond Carver. This understated, black-and-white collection should satisfy fiction aficionados in any medium.Library Journal
