Summary
From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the acclaimed graphic memoir Stitches comes a stunning graphic novel of one boy's heartbreaking coming of age in 1950s America. David Small's long-awaited follow-up evokes Lord of the Flies in its savage portrayal of male adolescence gone awry. Kaleidoscopic and cinematic, Home After Dark is both a visual and narrative tour de force that renders the brutality of adolescence in the so-called nostalgic 1950s like no other recent American work. After his mother abandons the family, fourteen-year-old Russell Pruitt follows his alcholic father to sun-splashed California in search of the American Dream. But Russell struggles to find his place in small town Marshfield, where he is bullied for being "queer" and falls into a tentative friendship with another outsider. After a series of unexpected events forces Russell to grow up fast, he has to confront his own frailities and cruelties, especially after his refusal to take action results in tragedy. A gritty, unsentimental, and unforgettable immersion in the life of a boy struggling to forge his own path to manhood
