Ghost World


Formats & editions


The astonishing graphic novel that became a cult classic and a major movie.

Ghost World tells of the adventures of Enid Coleslaw and Beck Doppelmeyer, two bored, supremely ironic teenage girls. They pass the time complaining about the guys they know and fantasising about strange men they see in the local diner. Clowes captures them with uncanny skill, raising the comic book to new heights.
