About the Author:

Karl Stevens: Karl Stevens is a graphic novelist and painter. His first book, Guilty, was published in 2004 with a grant from the Xeric Foundation. He is also the author of Whatever (2008), The Lodger (A Los Angeles Times Book Prize Finalist, 2010), and Failure (2013).

From Booklist:

Whatever, Stevens’ weekly feature in the Boston Phoenix, is about his circle of postcollegians. He shows them drinking, smoking, sleeping, waking, blundering about the apartment, waiting for buses, partying, playing in bands, in parks and on beaches, and talk-talk-talking or think-think-thinking—just about everything except working. In all this, a lot of unintentionally hilarious things are said or thought. Our hero, Karl, broods over a portrait-in-progress of the girl he broke up with; one track of his mind contemplates stylistic choices, another berates himself as a failed lover: “Is there no escape from the bullshit of the past?” he laments. A guy approaches a table at which a woman is laughing and looking at the guy sitting across from her: “Damn. Cock blocked!” the first guy thinks. Stevens gets no funnier than that, but he is reliably as funny, and he is a much more thorough realistic artist than the label cartoonist suggests. Two inserts of fully colored images bring to mind David Hockney and Philip Pearlstein, but Stevens is much warmer. --Ray Olson
