Nobody's Fool: The Life & Times
of Schlitzie the Pinhead
“Nobody’s Fool” is an act of
homage and loving reclamation. Griffith hasn’t forgotten
the influence Schlitzie had on his art, and in
way the book makes a fitting companion piece to
“Invisible Ink” (2015), a memoir of his parents’ marriage
that focused on his mother’s long affair with Lawrence Lariar,
a prolific, now forgotten cartoonist.
Virtuoso comic-strip artist Bill Griffith gives
voice to a true outcast — the sideshow attraction
born Simon Metz… This is an uplifting,
humane book… With “Nobody’s Fool,” Griffith suggests a transmigration of souls."
---New York Times
"This is one of those remarkable graphic
novels that truly takes your breathe away. It shares
a space with the best that the comics
medium has to offer.
It’s a utterly original and distinctive work of art inextricably
linked to one legendary talent. The detail and dedication
involved to make this happen is comparable,
say, to your favorite movie up for an Academy Award.
Yes, it’s that big of a deal."
