S J Harris signing Eustace
Come and meet S J HARRIS signing his stunning graphic novel EUSTACE (Jonathan Cape) at the Forbidden Planet London Megastore on Thursday 7th March from 6 – 7pm.
A blackly comic and surreal tale which will draw you in and spit you out. A beautifully rendered debut.
Poor Eustace is not very well. Convalescing in bed, his world is confined to the four walls of his grand and gloomy room. His days are spent in wild imaginings, punctuated by the occasional visit from his mother and a legion of Aunties, who fuss and smother Eustace.
But then his wicked uncle arrives in a cloud of pipe smoke, accompanied by a swelling cast of prostitutes, hoodlums, drunkards and assorted hangers-on. Suddenly Eustace finds himself transformed from invalid to the star of a glittering and decadent social scene, serving drinks and holding court from his enormous bed. That is, until his Uncle's past begins to catch up with him...
Eustace marks the debut of a brilliant new graphic novelist.
