Cecil and Jordan in New York
StoriesGraphic Novel - 2009
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.
