For over ten years Joe Matt has been notorious in cult circles for the embarrassing frankness with which he reveals his distressing habits and predilections. Utterly shameless and completely self-absorbed, Joe Matt writes with an exhibitionist's enthusiasm for his favorite subject, himself.

In his new graphic novel, Fair Weather, Joe examines his 1970s suburban childhood. In a surprisingly tasteful and thoughtful memoir young Joe Matt is a selfish child who steals from stores, takes advantage of his friends, threatens to burn his mother's house down, teases those weaker than himself, and reveals himself to be a fairly normal child. Completely unsentimental and strangely kind of endearing, Fair Weather continues the American tradition of hilarious self-exhibitionism.

Review:

"JOE MATT REVEALS PERSONAL DETAILS OF HIS LIFE WITH THE UNABASHEDNESS, AND THE TIMING, OF A STAND-UP COMEDIAN."

About the Author:

Joe Matt writes the legendary comic book Peepshow; an unflattering, although not strictly inaccurate, autobiography. Matt was born in 1963 in Philadelphia where evidently he never learned the meaning of shame.
