Patience, Hardback Book

Patience Hardback

Hardback

Description

Patience is an indescribable psychedelic science-fiction love story, veering with uncanny precision from violent destruction to deeply personal tenderness in a way that is both quintessentially 'Clowesian', and utterly unique in the author's body of work.

This 180-page, full-colour story affords Clowes the opportunity to draw some of the most exuberant and breathtaking pages of his life, and to tell his most suspenseful, surprising and affecting story yet. The story opens in 2012, when Jack Barlow returns home to find Patience, his pregnant girlfriend, murdered.

We meet him next in 2029, still haunted by the murder.

He hears of a guy who thinks he's invented a device that enables time travel.

On the next page Jack is in 2006, watching Patience on her dates with boys.

Is one of them the killer?
