Short stories, including the adapted-to-film original "Cecil and Jordan in New York"

Gabrielle Bell splits her cartooning time between creating wry sketchbook autobiographical comics, such as those included in her 2006 graphic novel, "Lucky," and working on more detailed fictional short stories. This collection represents her short comics work that has been published in various anthologies over the past five years, including "Kramer's Ergot," "Mome," and "The D+Q Showcase Book Four." The surrealist title story, in which a young woman turns herself into a chair so as not to be too much of a bother to those around her, is being adapted into a short film, "Interior Design," by director Michel Gondry ("Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind "and "The Science of Sleep") as part of the forthcoming Tokyo trilogy set for fall 2008 release.

Praise For Cecil and Jordan in New York

Praise for Gabrielle Bell:

“With a selective eye for detail and a knack for capturing tart dialogue, Bell squeezes joy from an underemployed and underrealized 20-something existence.” —The Washington Post
