A darkly funny portrait of Middle America seen through the stunted minds of its children. The modern lost souls of Beverly struggle with sexual anxieties that are just barely repressed and social insecurities that undermine every word they speak. Time passes, bodies change sizes, realities blur with fantasies, truths disintegrate, childhood comforts turn uncomfortable. Again and again, the civilized façades of Nick Drnaso's pitch-perfect suburban landscapes crack in the face of violence and quiet brutality. Drnaso's debut graphic novel, Beverly, leaves you haunted and squirming and longing for more.
