With graphic narrative that 'was closer to the writing of Bernard Malamud or Isaac Bashevis Singer than any comic art which had preceded it' (The Economist), A Contract with God, originally published in 1978, was the first graphic novel: the prototype - along with Life Force and Dropsie Avenue - for such seminal works as Maus and Persepolis. Set during the Great Depression, this literary trilogy, assembled in one volume for the first time, presents a treasure house of now near-mythic stories that fictionally illustrate the bittersweet tenement life of Eisner's youth. With nearly two dozen new illustrations and a revealing new foreword, this book ultimately tells the epic story of life, death, and resurrection while exploring man's fractious relationship with an all-too-vengeful God. This mesmerizing, fictional chronicle of the universal American immigrant experience is Eisner's most poignant and enduring legacy.

Review:

"An inspiration to several generations of cartoonists."

Will Eisner is the heart and mind of American comics.--Scott McCloud

Unlike any other comic book artist of his time, he created mood, atmosphere, and a sense of reality.--Jules Feiffer

Eisner was not only ahead of his times; the present times are still catching up to him.--John Updike

Born in New York City, Will Eisner (1917-2005) was the author of the legendary comic strip The Spirit, as well as fifteen graphic novels and three influential instructional textbooks. The comic industry's top awards, the Eisner Awards, are named in his honor.
