âAt 16, I pretended to fall in love with Alyssaâ¦â
Meet James and Alyssa, two teenagers facing the fears of coming adulthood. As their story is told through chapters which alternate between each characterâs perspective, however, this somewhat familiar teenage experience takes a more nihilistic turn. With Jamesâs character becoming rapidly more sociopathic, they are forced to take a road trip that owes as much to Badlands as The Catcher in the Rye, and which threatens both their futures forever.
One of the most talked about graphic novels of recent years, The End of The Fucking World marks Charles Forsmanâs UK debut.
