Edition: 2nd printing.

Montreal, Quebec: Drawn and Quarterly, (2007) dj. Hardcover - A NY Times Notable Book. "Tomine's first long-form graphic novel, is the story of Ben Tanaka, a confused, obsessive Japanese American male in his late twenties, and his cross-country search for contentment (or at least the perfect girl). Along the way, Tomine tackles modern culture, sexual mores, and racial politics with brutal honesty and lacerating, irreverent humor, while deftly bringing to life a cast of painfully real antihero characters. Shortcomings was serialized in Tomine's iconic comic book series Optic Nerve and was excerpted in McSweeney's Quarterly Concern #13." 108 pp. ISBN: 978-1897299166.

Condition: Fine in fine dust jacket (a new copy.)
