Read full description of the books George Sprott, 1894-1975:Seth's new graphic novel tells the story of George Sprott, the host of a long-running and unaccountably popular Canadian television programme, Northern Hi-Lights, in which he shows old films of the Arctic, while 'rambling on in a monotone voice about Eskimos or seal hunts or snowstorms' and often falling asleep on-air. On the surface George seems a charming, foolish, old man, but as we come to know him, piece by piece, in a series of'interviews', flashbacks and personal reminiscences a more complex picture emerges.
Another small masterpiece by the author of It's a Good Life If You Don't Weaken and Wimbledon Green, George Sprott is a story about time, identity, loss and the persistence of memory. It's beautifully drawn and often very funny.
