Description

Michel Rabagliati delivers another charming, thinly veiled memoir.

Michel Rabagliati crafts stories that are easily accessible to both young-adult and adult audiences with his semifictional protagonist, Paul. In "Paul Moves Out" he takes another step into adulthood by moving out of his parents' house and into his first apartment with his girlfriend, enjoying life's pleasures as well as confronting its challenges.

Praise For Paul Moves Out

Praise for Michel Rabagliati:

“Both funny and touching, Michel Rabagliati’s Paul Has a Summer Job has an authenticity sorely lacking in most forms of entertainment, not least of all comix . . . It reminds you of what you really enjoy literature for—the chance to connect to others and what’s real—and get away from superficiality and irony.” —Time.com

“Rabagliati’s confessional writing is free of self-loathing, and his black-and-white panels eschew halftones for a spirited line that adeptly conveys the messiness and joy of youth.” —Ed Park, The Village Voice
