The alcoholic by Jonathan Ames ( Book )
8 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 535 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Jonathan A. is a boozed-up, coked-out, sexually confused, hopelessly romantic and, of course, entirely fictional novelist who bears only a coincidental resemblance to real-life writer Jonathan Ames, critically acclaimed author of Wake Up, Sir!, The Extra Man and What's Not to Love? For the fictional Jonathan, writing and drinking come easy. The hard parts of life are love and hope. From a touching relationship between Jonathan and his aging great aunt, to an inebriated evening with an amorous, octogenarian dwarf, to the devastating aftermath of 9/11, Ames's first original graphic novel, with gritty, poignant art by Dean Haspiel (THE QUITTER), tells a story at once hilarious, excruciating, bizarre and universal, about how our lives fall to pieces and the enduring human struggle to put things back together again

"Meet Jonathan Ames: writer, romantic, unlicensed private detective.

L'homme de compagnie by Jonathan Ames ( Book )
2 editions published between 2001 and 2011 in French and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
""L'Homme de compagnie" c'est Woody Allen écartelé entre les rêves inaccessibles d'élégance raffinée et le violent rappel à l'ordre d'impérieuses pulsions sexuelles. "L'Homme de compagnie" c'est le récit d'une amitié cocasse et troublante entre deux hommes séparés par plus de quarante ans, mais que rapprochent une mentalité victorienne, l'insolence, un humour caustique, le goût de l'excentricité et du paradoxe. "L'Homme de compagnie", c'est enfin "une carte du tendre" hypersexuelle et hyperréaliste, un guide exhaustif, amusé, voir goguenard, du Manhattan nocturne et de ses multiples perversions
