The Alcoholic by Jonathan Ames and Dean Haspiel.


Title: The Alcoholic.
Author: Jonathan Ames.
Artist: Dean Haspiel.
Genre: Fiction, addiction, romance.
Country: U.S.
Language: English.
Publication Date: September, 2008.
Summary: For the boozed-up, coked-out, sexually confused, hopelessly romantic Jonathan, writing and drinking come easy. The hard parts of life are love and hope. From a touching relationship between Jonathan and his aging great aunt, to an inebriated evening with an amorous, octogenarian dwarf, to the devastating aftermath of 9/11, this gritty, poignant novel tells a story at once hilarious, excruciating, bizarre and universal, about how our lives fall to pieces and the enduring human struggle to put things back together again.

My rating: 7/10.
