Description

6 x 7, 150 pages, Softcover, perfect-bound. 1st Edition, 2017
The Empty Bed is a darkly funny pen-and-ink heartbreak book, a self-pitying lonely odyssey taking place after romantic relationships end. It is playful and mystical with many one page jokes of heavy truths in a loose narrative flow. The book includes an interview with the author's Mother on divorce and death, The Death Wish Guide To Loss and more! All rendered in quill and brush where words and pictures mingle freely.

"Robert's work on the stage and studio has always been both side-splittingly hilarious and goddamned distressing; working in the book format he offers up an additional, unexpected outcome — pure beauty!"
— Gregg Turkington, comedian

"Writer, artist, cartoonist, singer and performer Robert Dayton bluntly and humourously exposes the nerves and feels of a broken heart."
- Fiona Smyth, cartoonist, artist, co-author of Sex Is A Funny Word

"I love The Empty Bed, it contains all of the best parts of what Robert does -on top of new heart-wrenching parts I never knew he did!"
- Dan Bejar, musician

"A brilliantly original, painfully hilarious, and surprisingly touching ode to love and loss."
-Jodi Wille, Director of The Source Family
