Harvey Pekar

"Getting a job, finding a mate, having a place to live, finding a creative outlet. Life is a war of attrition. You have to stay active on all fronts. It's one thing after another. I've tried to control a chaotic universe. And it's a losing battle. But I can't let go. I've tried, but I can't", (Daily Telegraph, 13.07.2010).

Harvey Pekar, dames en heren. Harvey Pekar (1939-2010), stripantiheld, chroniqueur van het leven van ons, gewone sufferds. Fantastische film ook: American Splendor, over en met Pekar. "Ordinary life is really complex stuff". Inderdaad.
