Raw, bare-boned, scathingly funny dispatches from the renown comic diarist Gabrielle Bell, with biting cultural commentary mixed with her signature introspective, self-deprecating humor and surreal digressions (From car driving bears, through Zombie Apocalypses, to cute babies, and… more bears!) as she visits France, Sweden, Switzerland, Norway, Colombia, back to Brooklyn and finally landing in Upstate New York. In Truth Is Fragmentary Gabrielle Bell proves she can be… funny!

"Refreshingly revelatory and charmingly accessible, this book follows up the previous autobiographical comics Lucky and The Voyeurs and easily solidifies Bell’s reputation as one of the greatest autobiographical cartoonists working."―Publishers Weekly, Starred Review

"Bell's work is bursting with heart. Her keen eye for detail and empathetic, introspective voice results in comics that are joyful, unexpected and often refreshingly hilarious."―Huffington Post

"[Gabrielle Bell's] comics brim with unpredictable, incisive observation, as she records not just the humming details of daily existence, but the fancies that fill life’s lulls as well."―The Globe and Mail

"[Gabrielle Bell's] work is strong because of its writing ― this includes the way she structures a story from panel to panel. The tone is conversational, self-amused, unstressed and assuredly improvisational, like watching an excellent cook throw a meal together from what’s already on hand in the kitchen."―Paste Magazine

"As a collection of slices from a cartoonist’s life – including cameos by virtually anyone who is anyone in indie comics – Bell is personable and funny and there is no requirement to go further in order to enjoy her work. But the pleasure of Bell is that there’s so much that lies further if you want to delve beyond the amusing awkward conversations."―The Comics Journal

"[Gabrielle] Bell’s raw assemblage of international travel episodes, perpetual introspection, and examination of her own comics (within her own comics) is both absorbing and funny."―Hyperallergic
