The Building (W.W. Norton)

    (W.W. Norton, 2006)
™ and ©2006 The Estate of Will Eisner

From the Publisher:

In this haunting graphic novel, Will Eisner presents four interwoven tales of life in the city: Monroe Mensh, an anonymous worker who minded his own business; Gilda Greene, a former golden girl still in love with her high school flame; P.J. Hammond, a real estate developer with a consuming obsession; and Antonio Tonatti, an immigrant worker who played violin with great passion but only amateur talent. With characteristic mastery, Eisner blends these four ghostly tales with the story of the building itself, all culminating in a dramatic final act.

Born in New York in 1917, Will Eisner was the author of the legendary comic strip The Spirit. His fourteen graphic novels, three compilations, and his posthumous graphic history, The Plot, form the Norton Will Eisner Library. The comic industry’s top annual awards, “The Eisners,” are named in his honor.
