The legendary Jules Feiffer presents his first noir graphic novel. Spiced with the deft humour for which Feiffer is renowned, Kill My Mother centres on five formidable women linked fatefully and fatally by a has-been, hard-drinking private detective. Featuring a fighter turned tap dancer, a small-time thug who dreams of being a hit man, a name-dropping cab driver, a communist off-licence owner and a film star with a mind-boggling secret, this band of old enemies congregates on a Pacific island to settle scores. Combining Feiffer's skills to draw us into this seductively menacing world, bluesy, fast-moving and funny, Kill My Mother is a noir-graphic novel like the films they don't make anymore.
Jules Feiffer is a cartoonist, playwright, screenwriter, children's book author and illustrator, and member of the American Academy of Arts and Letters. He teaches a humor-writing class at Stony Brook Southampton College and lives in East Hampton, New York.
