About this item

Palookaville, the graphic novel by Canadian cartoonist Seth (Gregory Gallant), creates a dystopian reality that struggles with existential questions about the time, fate and identity. His bold, confident draughtsmanship depicts life in a bygone era and illustrates complex tales of the tragic consequences of living a static, inauthentic life.

In Palookaville: Seth and the Art of Graphic Autobiography, curator, critic and author Tom Smart examines the microscopic separation between Seth's art and life, between his graphic fiction and the autobiographical elements that it contains. Smart's analysis of the Palookaville story unfolds ****** clues into the artist's construction of identity, but more, it reveals art's ability to make sense of life, the passage of time, and perhaps even our own humanity.
