Shell - An Autobiography of Relinquished Romances

What's it about?


The Shell is part-travelogue, part-confessional, and all-heartfelt.
It covers 15 years of fragile relationships over four chapters of writer and artist Dan Gilmore's life.

It's about struggling to fit into a fundamentalist church while wrestling with raging hormones and lust - and escaping a wild hippopotamus.

Ultimately, it's about coming to terms with the need to break up a relationship - even the best relationship in your life.

Which books would you compare it to?


The subject matter and tone is most reminiscent of the classic Blankets by Craig Thompson. As a slice-of-life autobiography dealing with philosophical quandries and personal insecurities, Shell may also appeal to fans of Harvey Pekar's works.
