Meanwhile, At Litro: Hubert and Urban Isolation

My latest column for Litro is up. In it, I talk about Ben Gijseman’s graphic novel Hubert, about loneliness as opposed to being alone, and about how creating art requires a connection with another person. It’s not quite a review. Hope you enjoy it!

  1. Excellent piece. I find graphic novels difficult to write about to, but you’ve given us a window, so to speak, into the book. I loved your point at the end—I’m sure the author would be grateful to know the book’s had a reader who picked up on a tricky, subtle theme.
