I had just about given up on ideas for Wuthering Heights until the other day when I stumbled upon a beautifully illustrated version of the book by Fritz Eichenberg. It was two dollars! Unbelievable. His evocative woodcuts spurred me into action!



Because this is such a busy time, and such an intense book to cover, I am breaking the comics into smaller updates! That way you won't be waiting so long for them while I run around town and do all that fancy press and tour stuff.

Speaking of fancy stuff, there are some interviews and articles coming your way! Here is an interview from Salon, and here is a review from the NPR blog. We're picking up steam, ladies and gents!




The book is available for order on Amazon! So many exciting things happening.



Did you know that the actual book launch is very soon? It's this Tuesday, September 27 here in New York, at Housing Works! Here are some details over at the New Yorker!
