Dan Clowes author, screenwriter and cartoonist

Host S.W. Conser speaks with Dan Clowes, the Oscar-nominated author of Ghost World and 2011 recipient of the PEN Literary Award for Graphic Literature.

Much of Clowes's work first appeared in his anthology comic Eightball, which featured self-contained serialized narratives. All of the serialized narratives have been collected and published as graphic novels, most notably Ghost World. With filmmaker Terry Zwigoff, Clowes adapted Ghost World into the 2001 film of the same name, and he also adapted another Eightball story into the 2006 film Art School Confidential.
