Join us at Arnolfini Bookshop for the launch of Joff Winterhart’s new book Driving Short Distances.

About the book...

'Returning to his hometown after a breakdown, Sam has the good fortune to land a job with Keith, a man of “remarkable textures”, and begins a journey of Pasties and Portakabins in Keith’s Audi…'

One of the best authors of graphic fiction in the UK, Joff Winterhart’s latest is already a Book of the Month in the Guardian and features the superb sense of humour and touching observations displayed in his excellent debut Days of Bagnold Summer.

“Masterpiece is an overused word in reviews and ordinarily I avoid it with much the same determination as Keith tries to avoid getting crumbs on his work trousers. In this case, however, it is the only one that will do.” The Guardian


The launch...

Join us at Arnolfini Bookshop where Driving Short Distances will be available for a special launch price of £12.99 (RRP £14.99) and Joff Winterhart will be signing copies of the book.

"In Driving Short Distances Joff Winterhart has created an unforgettable central player, Keith Nutt, who deserves to join Keith Talent in the short but potent list of great British literary Keiths. He is an unforgettable character, beautifully drawn and exquisitely written, and he confirms Winterhart as one of the most talented graphic novelists in the UK."  Zadie Smith
