In his debut book Sean Karemaker presents stories of his wild BC country childhood contrasted with his downtown Vancouver bus riding adventures. In between are stories of small town parties, drawing in cafés, school misfits, scrolls, street people of all kinds, and winding through it all are the ghosts, both known and unknown.

Karemaker has a distinct panelless style of comics in which the narrative and art blend seamlessly. Journal writing has always been an instinctive foundation for him — most often of an observational, autobiographical nature — and here he combines it with flowing, murky images to make wholly original comics.
