Bob Schofield, author of The Inevitable June, will be coming to New York on June 1 to sketch the book live at The Gallery at LPR.
The Inevitable June (The Newer York, 2014) is a beautiful bout of lightheadedness. It’s a sad, surreal adventure, that is both intimate and epic. Tracking the day by day slog of its narrator, The Inevitable June creates a non-linear narrative of a month in the life of its strange, grayscale protagonist. The highest compliment I can give this book is that both the narrative and the illustrations don’t require each other. Inside of each is contained an entire strange story. This could be a successful picture book or surreal series of flash narratives. Together, they transcend genre into something eerie, wonderful, and funny. It’s an illustrated bit of high weirdness. A poetic comic in surreality. A sketchbook diary of a month on acid.
To see this illustrated and read live will be a really unique experience. Check it out on June 1 if you’re in NYC.
The ebook of The Inevitable June is available now and the print edition will be available on June 1 (and probably at the reading that day as well). Watch the trailer for the book below.
