A REMARKABLE COLLECTION OF STORIES BY COMICS LEGEND WILL EISNER
A commonplace clerk turns private eye. A lifelong failure attemps a marathon. An octogenarian hitman tries to settle an old score. The seven exceptional short works gathered here range from the grim to the hilarious, narrating lives of the good, the bad, and the eccentric. Featuring "A Sunset in Sunshine City", Eisner's very personnal ode to memory and nostalgia inspired by his transition to Florida, this book displays the artist's mastery of the short story form, as well as his acute understanding of family and friendship, betrayal and redemption.
