The Burlingame Library presents award-winning artist Paul Madonna in celebration of his exquisite new graphic novel, Close Enough for the Angels.
Emit Hopper was a one-hit wonder--twice. First as a rock and roller in the 80s, then as a literary darling in the 90s. Now it's twenty years later, and despite his desire to remain a simple laundromat owner, stardom has found him once again. As he's drawn back into the limelight he meets Julia, a former celebrity chef with a dark past. But when she disappears while hiking with two other women, Emit finds himself chasing down a mystery that promises to leave him forever changed.
With his signature blend of drawing and storytelling, Paul Madonna (All Over Coffee, Everything is its own reward) delivers a beautiful and entertaining novel filled with suspense, surprise, and humor. Paired with over a hundred lush and haunting drawings from Thailand to Japan, Close Enough for the Angels is a profound visual and narrative ride.
