Here from his Toronto home is one of the foremost graphic narrative artists at work today, Chester Brown. His new graphic novel puts it out there: Paying for It: A Comic Strip Memoir About Being a John (Drawn & Quarterly). "Paying for It is as personal as you can get. It's a clear-eyed, not-even-slightly erotic, compulsively readable, sometimes painfully honest account of his time, reasons, and experiences paying for sex ... Paying for It is the kind of book that will engage your mind and force you to think about things in ways you may never have done before." – Neil Gaiman. "A must read in the canon of sensible and sensitive voices making a case against prurient ideology-based rhetoric about consensual sexual behavior." – Sasha.
