Everything We Miss
About the Book
"EVERYTHING WE MISS is Luke Pearson's breakthrough graphic novella, in which he brilliantly wrong-foots your every expectation, fluttering between surreal humor and deep pathos and proving the unique visual-verbal alchemy of comics to capture the ephemeral and symbolize the rawest emotions."—Paul Gravett, editor of 1001 Comics To Read Before You Die
On the dawn horizon, a pine tree all too briefly uproots itself. It dances...and nobody sees.
The low drone of the car's engine is heard and ignored from sleepy bedroom windows for miles around.
Have you ever wondered what goes on in your life when you're looking the other way? Perhaps you're so drawn into what's going on with you that you fail to notice the events taking place in your periphery --- or even right under your nose? In EVERYTHING WE MISS, Luke Pearson explores the dying days of a failing relationship through the infinitesimal unseen moments that surround it --- and us. Pearson's most ambitious project to date is a poignant and empathetic graphic novella from one of the most exciting young creators in British comics. As well as an essential showcase of Pearson's astonishing visual storytelling ability, this is a book for anyone who's ever experienced loss, or agonized about what they have yet to find.
