A fabulous piece
(really, go and read it, and it's got enough pictures to show you exactly why you want to get the book as well), Peter Breedveld interviewing Charles Burns at Frontaal Naakt (the title, attractively: "I am not normal on the inside"). (Thanks to Backwards City for the link.) And here's the Amazon link for Black Hole. Just get it, of course some people will find it revolting and stomach-turning but it really is the most poignant and moving book about adolescence, which is after all one of the great topics of literature (it's my particular topic too, I think, at least in this stage of life).
