The Miami Herald reviws THE ALCOHOLIC

The Miami Herald 10/21/08


BOOK REVIEWS
Graphic novels roundup
The Alcoholic. Jonathan Ames and Dean Haspiel. Vertigo. 136 pages.
$19.99.


Jonathan Ames is a successful performer, essayist and novelist of mostly
noirish detective fiction. Aided by artist and American Splendor
stalwart Dean Haspiel, he recounts his life of sexual ambiguity,
substance abuse, and affairs of the heart and other organs. An
unrequited boyhood crush and the unconditional love of a favorite aunt
provide resonant and visceral emotional counterpoints. Haspiel's images
are powerful and complementary. As with the best art, the reader is left
wondering what's next.
