Congrats to SHOPLIFTER by Michael Cho which has received wonderful accolades this year including among others, A Boston Globe Best Book of 2014, a Globe and Mail Best 100 Books and appearing on the front page of the New York Times Weekend Arts section. The NYT holiday gift guide calls it “engrossing reading, with smart dialogue and lush images in black, white, and pink.” SHOPLIFTER by Michael Cho (Pantheon) follows Corrina Park, a twenty-something copywriter who escapes the ennui of her life through shoplifting. It debuted on the NYT Bestseller list for Graphic Novels in September 2014.
The Globe 100 is out! Among the 100 best books of 2014 are Transatlantic’s THE SEARCH FOR HEINRICH SCHLOGEL (by Martha Baillie), SHOPLIFTER (Michael Cho), THE TROUBLE WITH BRUNCH (Shawn Micallef), WILL STARLING (Ian Weir) and THE FREEDOM IN AMERICAN SONGS (Kathleen Winter). Congratulations to all the authors on the list.
In the tradition of Ghost World by Daniel Clowes comes Michael Cho’s highly anticipated original graphic novel debut SHOPLIFTER, a riveting portrait of a frustrated young woman who shoplifts in the evening to ease the pains of her shallow day job.
