Essex County tells the stories of residents living in a rural farming town. Individually, the tales are hugely moving; Lemire explores loneliness, regret and loss, but as a set they weave together and expose a deep, interconnected community. The result is a book that is incredibly involving, hauntingly beautiful and utterly unforgettable.
Equal parts elating and melancholic, The Sculptor perfectly captures the passion and desperation of a struggling artist. Vibrantly written and illustrated, McCloud takes you on an emotional adventure that will keep you guessing right up until the heart-breaking conclusion.
