The funniest, most moving and expansive graphic novel yet from the acclaimed author of The Con Artists and Americana.

‘Who is Luke Healy?’

For over ten years, a graphic novelist called Luke Healy has invested all of his self-esteem into his career. Then, almost overnight, just as his brother is getting married, both seem to vanish.

Spiralling and lacking purpose, he searches for identity – in self-help books, replacement jobs and human connection – and visits cheesy British hotels and abandoned Greek islands.

Set against the backdrop of a dangerously changing global climate, with melting ice-caps and flooding cities, Self-Esteem and the End of the World spans two decades of tragicomic self-discovery until the unlikely prospect of a Hollywood revival of Luke’s work comes into view – but what might be the cost?

‘One of the finest cartoonists working today.’ James Sturm
