The Loneliness of the Long Distance Cartoonist and I Know You Rider Make Publishers Weekly Most Anticipated Books of Spring 2020 List

“The Most Anticipated Books of Spring 2020” / Publishers Weekly / PW Staff / January 31, 2020

Drawn from the 14,000+ titles in PW's Spring Announcements issue, we asked our reviews editors to pick the most notable books publishing in Spring 2020. 

The Loneliness of the Long-Distance Cartoonist by Adrian Tomine (Drawn & Quarterly, May) - Awkward and cringe-inducing moments on the fringes of growing literary fame haunt Tomine (Killing and Dying) as the popular indie cartoonist (and frequent New Yorker cover artist) looks back at his life’s trajectory.


 I Know You Rider by Leslie Stein (Drawn & Quarterly, May) - Stein (Present) juxtaposes the story of her abortion against her encounters with mothers (including her own) and children (of her friends and strangers) as she processes a hard experience, relevant to many, that few talk about, in her trademark impressionistic watercolors.
