Evocatively wrought and gorgeously illustrated, Other People collects Days of the Bagnold Summer and Driving Short Distances, first published in the UK to wide acclaim. In Bagnold Summer, a teenager spends a long summer with his mother, much to his disappointment. Capturing the dynamics of family and growing up, Winterhart captures the ennui, pathos, and affection of the mother-son relationship. In Driving Short Distances, Sam needs a job and purpose, so begins a apprenticeship of sorts in the passenger side of Keith's car. As Sam learns something about the self-styled big-man Keith, and the humility of everyday living, Winterhat's pen turns ordinary life into a tableau poignant and comedic.
