Building Stories

In Chris Ware's own words, ' Building Stories follows the inhabitants of a three-flat Chicago apartment house: a thirty-year-old woman who has yet to find someone with whom to spend the rest of her life; a couple who wonder if they can bear each other's company for another minute; and finally an elderly woman who never married and is the building's landlady...'
The scope, the ambition, the artistry and emotional heft of this project are beyond anything even Chris Ware has achieved before.
" Building Stories was one of the most incredible experiences I had all year... This comics collections is really something special." Steve Gaynor Games Radar

Chris Ware is the author of Jimmy Corrigan, The Smartest Kid on Earth, which won the Guardian First Book Award in 2001, and Quimby the Mouse (2003). Winner of countless awards, he is widely acknowledged as the most gifted cartoonist of his generation.

"There's nobody else doing anything in this medium that remotely approaches Ware for originality, plangency, complexity and exactitude. Astonishment is an entirely appropriate response." -- Sam Leith Guardian "A major moment in British cultural history." -- Christopher Frayling Radio 4 "Breathtaking... Staggeringly good." Shortlist "Just occasionally, a writer or artist - or both in one - emerges who is so astoundingly original that everything else suddenly seems like a facsimile of what has come before. Chris Ware, the 45-year-old American comics artist, is one of these. Widely hailed as one of the foremost practitioners working in the medium today, his new book, if one can call it that without being reductionist, is a work of such startling genius that it is difficult to know where to begin." -- Jake Wallis Simons Daily Telegraph "This is the first book which I have finished and immediately started again, wanting to experience each of the stories with full knowledge of what happens in the rest... The number of narrative techniques Ware uses in the novel is giddying... Building Stories is a stunning piece of work, proving yet again why Ware is so frequently included in lists of the greatest living cartoonists." -- Alex Hern New Statesman
