Led by Greenlight bookseller Emily, our new graphic novel book group in Prospect Lefferts Gardens reads and discusses comics and graphic novels in a variety of genres. For April, the group discusses One Dirty Tree by Noah Van Sciver. Noah Van Sciver is haunted by the house at 133 ____ Street, or as his brothers rechristened it “One Dirty Tree.” This sprawling, dilapidated New Jersey house was his first home and the site of formative experiences. Growing up in a big, poor, Mormon family—surrounded by comic-books, eight siblings, bathtubs full of dirty dishes—Noah’s childhood exerts a powerful force on his present-day relationship. Drawn in his inimitable style, written with wry wit and humor, One Dirty Tree is another reason why Noah Van Sciver is one of the best cartoonists of his generation.
