You're All Just Jealous of My Jetpack

Comics

By Tom Gauld

"Dryly hilarious, the comics in You're all just jealous of my jetpack perfectly distill cartoonist Tom Gauld's dark humour, impeccable timing, and distinctinve style, all of which have made his work a popular weekly feature in The Guardian. Unexpected pairings such as the Brontë sisters and video games cross the classic with the contemporary. Gauld gleefully pokes fun at the canon of great authors--Shakespeare, Thoreau, Dickens, and Martin Amis all fall beneath his mighty pen. The real star of the collection, though, is the idea of the novel itself and its many forms, including the difficult novel, the realist novel, the experimental novel, and the never-ending question--is the novel dead? Definitely not for Gauld. Droll literary references abound with piercing observations about human behaviour and whimsical imaginings of the future."--Provided by publisher.
