"Funny, sad, and a little embarrassing, Jeff Brown . . . delivers the look at real life that other forms of 'reality' entertainment falsely promise." -- Andrew Arnold, Time
Clumsy is Jeffrey Brown's debut work; a book praised by Chris Ware and hailed by James Kochalka as his "favorite graphic novel ever." Clumsy is the bittersweet story of a year-long, long-distance relationship, told through snippets of everyday life, drawn in a simple and elegantly awkward style that heightens the emotional impact and leaves you reminiscing about your own past love affairs. It also has a lot of sex.

About the Author
Jeffrey Brown is the best selling author and illustrator of the middle grade Jedi Academy series, as well as the Darth Vader and Son series.

His most recent project has been 40,000 years in the making: Lucy & Andy Neanderthal! Lucy and Andy are a brother and sister living in the stone age, where they struggle to survive mammoths, cave bears, and their own sibling rivalry. Lucy & Andy Book Two: The Stone Cold Age is available now.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
The very best of Jeffrey Brown's comics; funny and sad and sweet and full of moments that make you go, "oh, I remember that..." If you've ever dated, or had a relationship go bad, then you'll understand this book. Sparsely drawn, disarmingly cute, most of what he's written since doesn't quite have the same freshness or sincerity.
Reading this made me feel very uncomfortable because it is so human and real. Brown is brave to put so much of himself out there.
Okay, I'm hooked on this kid's graphic novels. Shoot me if I move on to manga.
