Money makes the world go round, as they say. And around. And around.
Award-winning graphic novelist Eddie Campbell presents a delightful autobiographical voyage into the financial wilderness. With his trademark blend of research, anecdote, autobiography, and fantasy, Campbell explores how money underwrites human relationships —from the imaginary wealth of Ponzi schemes and television pilots, to the stone currency of the Micronesian island of Yap.
No one else in the medium combines emotional truth, literary intelligence, and formal daring with such adroitness and elegance.
Eddie Campbell is best known for his collaboration with Alan Moore on the epic graphic novel From Hell. He's also known for creating the irreverent and wine-soaked series Bacchus, which revives the Greek gods in a sprawling, unpredictable, and enormously entertaining thousand-page epic; and the award-winning autobiographical series Alec, which has earned him the reputation as one of the great raconteurs in the medium of comics. His other collaborations include The Birth Caul and Snakes & Ladders (also with Alan Moore), two moving and personal poems adapted into the comics form, and The Playwright (with Daren White), a dark comedy about the sex life of a celibate middle-aged man. Married and a father of three, Eddie writes and draws from his home in a quiet suburb of Queensland, Australia.
