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 Tôkyô! trilogy set for fall 2008 release.
Gabrielle Bell is a Brooklyn-based cartoonist whose work includes the graphic novel Lucky. She has also been published in the anthologies Kramer’s Ergot, Mome, and The D+Q Showcase Book Four.
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
