First serialized in The New York Times Magazine “Funny Pages”
Celebrated cartoonist and New Yorker cover artist Seth gives us the fictional life of George Sprott. On the surface, George seems a charming, foolish old man—but who is he? And who was he? Told as a patchwork tale, we come to know George, piece by piece, in a series of "interviews", flashbacks, and personal reminiscences. George Sprott is a story about time, identity, loss, and the pervasiveness of memory. Though ultimately this is the story of a man's death, Seth leavens it with humor, restraint, and a light touch.
Originally serialized in the New York Times magazine, this greatly expanded and "re-mastered" version is its first publication as a complete work.
