Our Book of the Week is the devastatingly funny graphic novel Rufus Marigold by Ross Murray.
Rufus Marigold is a primate with a problem. He suffers acutely from anxiety and every social encounter is a harrowing ordeal. A budding artist, Rufus spends his days working in an office. As life become increasingly more of a struggle, Rufus yearns to be defined as something other than a complete nervous wreck. Highly recommended.
