You only think you know this story. In 1991, Jeffrey Dahmer-the most notorious serial killer since Jack the Ripper-seared himself into the American consciousness. To the public, Dahmer was a monster who committed unthinkable atrocities. To Derf Backderf, Dahmer was a much more complex figure: a high school friend with whom he had shared classrooms, hallways, and car rides. In My Friend Dahmer, a haunting and original graphic novel, writer-artist Backderf creates a surprisingly sympathetic portrait of a disturbed young man struggling against the morbid urges emanating from the deep recesses of his psyche-a shy kid, a teenage alcoholic, and a goofball who never quite fit in with his classmates. With profound insight, what emerges is a Jeffrey Dahmer that few ever really knew, and readers will never forget. This new paperback edition will coincide with the release of the movie adaptation of My Friend Dahmer and will include additional bonus content from the author archives.

Recensioner i media

My Friend Dahmer is a vivid 1970s period piece, reeking of Mad magazine and acid rock, and with his trippy, expressive black-and-white drawings, Backderf shows how the sickness of that self-obsessed decade is somehow inseparable from the disease that drove Dahmer. -- Time Entertainment online "Despite the potentially lurid and exploitative sounding subject matter, this portrait of the high school days of serial killer-to-be Jeffrey Dahmer, adapted from John Backderf's graphic novel, is a serious and compassionate work." -- The Crack "Marc Meyers's MY FRIEND DAHMER is the haunting, sad, funny, true story of Jeffrey Dahmer in high school, based on Derf Backderf's critically acclaimed 2012 graphic novel of the same name." -- From Page to Screen "Based on the graphic novel memoir by Derf Backderf - a fair-weather friend of Dahmer's from high school - Meyers' film is a ghoulishly funny and profoundly sad portrait of a future killer." -- Total Film "A thoughtful adaptation of his schoolmate John Backderf's Robert Crumb-styled graphic novel, rich with detail and regret, it deconstructs the perfect storm of failures -by family, by friends, in his school life-that let him slip. [...] A humane film, this takes its responsibility as a true story seriously, without the luridness or cheap jump scares of Ed Gein (2000). Shot in Dahmer's utterly suburban childhood home, and cleaving tightly to Backderfs wish to bear witness, it's an exquisite dissection of how monsters are not only born, but also made." -- Sight & Sound magazine
