Book Description:
Pekar has proven that comics can address the ambiguities of daily living, that like the finest fiction, they can hold a mirror up to life.
The New York Times

For years Heather Roberson, a passionate peace activist, has argued that war can always be avoided. But she has repeatedly faced counterarguments that fighting is an inescapable consequence of world conflicts. Indeed, Heather finds proving her point to be a little tricky without examples to bolster her case. So she does something a little crazy: She sets out for far off Macedonia, a landlocked country north of Greece and west of Bulgaria, to explore a region that has edged repeatedly close to the brink of violence, only to refrain.

In the process and as vividly portrayed by the talented duo of Harvey Pekar and Ed Piskor Heather is tangled in red tape, ripped off by cabdrivers and hotel clerks, hit on by creepy guys, secretly photographed, and mistaken for a spy. She also creates unlikely friendships, learns that getting lost means seeing something new, and makes some startling discoveries. War is hell and peace is difficult but conflict is always necessary.

Harvey Pekar wrestles the kind of things most comic book heroes wouldn t touch with a laser blaster.
Cleveland Plain Dealer

A visit with Harvey Pekar . . . will cause you to reexamine your own life . . . just as the greatest literature will.
The Austin Chronicle

Pekar lets all of life flood into his panels: the humdrum and the heroic, the gritty and the grand.
The New York Times Book Review
