About Book

The award-winning debut feature of self-taught US auteur Kevin Smith, Clerks is set in and around that well-known hub of the social universe, a convenience store in suburban New Jersey. It revolves around a day in the amiably bickering friendship of Dante and Randal, hapless clerks who serve time behind the counter. The monotony of work compels these reluctant wage-slaves to resort to simple diversions: shooting the breeze, antagonising their customers and indulging time-honoured masculine obsessions (sex, movie trivia, ice hockey).

Clerks showcases Kevin Smith's keen ear for dialogue and his ability to capture ordinary life in the raw, leavening the edge with buoyant down 'n' dirty humour.
