Video store clerk Darla Vogel is fed up. Fed up with her job, her wake-and-bake roommate, everything. But when one of the customers at Kwok's Video, a precocious home-schooled kid with dreams of... chemically engineering authentic meat-flavoring, offers her some of his meat-tinged candies, Darla takes a plunge down the rabbit hole into a surreal world of throbbing, veinous buildings, compulsory public nudity, weird creatures and more. If William S. Burroughs, Lewis Carroll, H.P. Lovecraft and Harvey Kurtzman had a mutant lovechild, it might resemble Bob Fingerman's bold new confection Connective Tissue. Fingerman, a cartoonist and novelist best known for an acclaimed graphic novel (Beg the Question, a Gen X classic with 'dialogue worthy of the stage' according to Entertainment Weekly) and an acclaimed prose novel (Bottomfeeder, which Booklist described as 'at the front ranks of its genre' in a starred review), merges his two favorite disciplines in Connective Tissue, a genre-bending and medium-mixing work best described as a fully illustrated novella. Fingerman's visuals complement and supplement his crackling prose, giving vivid life to the surreal world and people that populate the story. Connective Tissue will further escalate Fingerman's reputation as a master of genre fiction, regardless of the medium.
