Wat zegt de pers?
‘David Small’s extraordinary new graphic novel, Home After Dark, is the story of Russell, a teenage boy abandoned first by his mother and then by his father. It’s about Russell’s adolescence but also everyone’s: learning who you can and can’t trust, the complexities of relationships with your peers, and figuring out who you are and the kind of person you want to be…. A wonderful book and a great follow-up to Stitches.” - Roz Chast
‘Think of Lord of the Flies and Catcher in the Rye joined as one, yet even more painfully honest. Home After Dark is a haunting work of unfolding surprise. Few words, cinematic pictures, dazzling art.’ - Jules Feiffer
‘Home After Dark Is incredibly moving. David Small is among the most masterful storytellers alive today.’ - Gene Luen Yang
‘A master graphic storyteller who has certainly captured male adolescence in 1950s America. Having to think about dodging high school bullies every day sure resonated with me! And Russell’s sexual predicament was handled a very original way.’ - Robert Crumb
