Cecil and Jordan in New York: Stories

Cecil and Jordan in New York - Gabrielle Bell Gabrielle Bell’s Cecil and Jordan in New York pulls together several stories told in comic book format that are held together by themes of social awkwardness, nostalgia, and the search for personal meaning in an all-too-meaningless world. Their settings range from the mundane to the fantastical, with the two often bleeding into each other: an independent filmmaker’s girlfriend turns into a chair, an unlikely meeting with a Latin American novelist causes worlds to collide uncomfortably, a woman who falls upward travels fugue-like through bizarre and disjointed adventures.full review
