The Con Artists: Luke Healy in Conversation
Luke Healy will be appearing in conversation with journalist and author Rachel Cooke at Gosh! on Tuesday 14th June, 7.30-9pm, to celebrate the release of his latest graphic novel from Faber, The Con Artists. Luke will also be signing copies of the book following the talk.
Irish-born, London-based Luke Healy, a 2014 graduate of James Sturm’s Vermont-based Centre for Cartoon Studies, burst onto the scene with 2016’s How to Survive in the North, a critical hit. With his delicate linework, convincing characters and mix of biography, reportage and fiction, he has since built on the promise of that early work with autobiographical offerings Permanent Press and the wonderful Americana. The Con Artists represents Luke’s first foray into pure fiction, and we are totally here for it.

As Frank moves in with Giorgio to help him recover, he begins to suspect that the perfect life Giorgio has been sharing online may be nothing more than a web of lies and scams. Finding himself unable to break free from his friend’s complicated life, has Frank become Giorgio’s unwitting accomplice?’
