A tale of single parenting and heavy metal.
'When someone looks back and writes a history of this summer, two people they will almost certainly leave out are Sue ad Daniel Bagnold...'
So begins Joff Winterhart's sublimely funny and perceptive graphic novel, Days of the Bagnold Summer. Sue, 52, works in a library. Daniel, 15, is still at school. This was the summer holidays Daniel was due to spend with his father and his father's pregnant new wife in Florida. When they cancel his trip, Sue and Daniel face six long weeks together.
Joff Winterhart perfectly captures the ennui, the tension, the pathos and yes, the affection of this mother-son relationship. Already well-known for his animated films like Violet and Turquoise, he here shows himself to be a comics author of extraordinary talent.

"Days of the Bagnold Summer is extremely original, funny, touching and beautifully observed in both the drawing and the writing. There is probably no truer portrait of teenage and parental angst." -- Posy Simmonds "A universal crowd graphic novel of the year... I love this book so much, I would have to instantly excommunicate any friend who didn't feel the same way - though such is its greatness, this won't ever happen." -- Rachel Cooke Observer "Britain's got a new graphic novel star. This funny, sad, extraordinary study of a heavy metal-loving teen and his long-suffering single mum is so well observed it makes your heart tingle." -- Larushka Ivan-Zadek Metro "Days of the Bagnold Summer captures the humiliation and agony of adolescence with excruciating precision. This short, devastating book haunted me for weeks." -- Seb Hunter, Author Of 'hell Bent For Leather' "This is a memorable household, seemingly passed over by history yet given their rightful place on these pages - and recommended by us as well worth meeting."
