Alan Moore’s Jerusalem in Paperback: Liveright September 2018 Solicits

Posted by June 20, 2018 Comment

It may be heavy enough to knock out a random stranger unfortunate to pass underneath your window when you have your copy precariously balanced on on the edge of a balcony while doing the hokey cokey — but at least if it’s in paperback, it won’t actually kill them.

Alan Moore‘s second novel, Jerusalem, weighing in at two-thirds of a million pages, will be published in paperback in the USA by Liveright in September. Here’s the solicitation — as well as David Small‘s new graphic novel Home After Dark also coming to comic book stores in September.

(W) Alan Moore

The New York Times-bestseller from the author of Watchmen and V for Vendetta finally appears in a one-volume paperback. In decaying Northampton, eternity loiters between housing projects. Among saints, kings, prostitutes, and derelicts, a timeline unravels: second-century fiends wait in urine-scented stairwells, delinquent specters undermine a century with tunnels, and in upstairs parlors, laborers with golden blood reduce fate to a snooker tournament. Through the labyrinthine streets and pages of Jerusalem tread ghosts singing hymns of wealth and poverty. They celebrate the English language, challenge mortality post-Einstein, and insist upon their slum as Blake’s eternal holy city.

David Small’s long-awaited graphic novel is a savage portrayal of male adolescence gone awry like no other work of recent fiction or film. Thirteen-year-old Russell Pruitt, abandoned by his mother, follows his father to sun-splashed California in search of a dream. Suddenly forced to fend for himself, Russell struggles to survive in Marshfield, a dilapidated town haunted by a sadistic animal killer and a ring of malicious boys who bully Russell for being “queer.” Rescued from his booze-swilling father by Wen and Jian Mah, a Chinese immigrant couple who long for a child, Russell betrays their generosity by running away with their restaurant’s proceeds. Home After Dark becomes a new form of literature in this shocking graphic interpretation of cinema verite..
