Noah Van Sciver is haunted by the house at 133 ____ Street, or as his brothers rechristened itOne Dirty Tree. This sprawling dilapidated New Jersey house was his first home and the site of formative experiences. Growing up in a big, poor, Mormon family—surrounded by comic-books, eight siblings, bathtubs full of dirty dishes—Noah’s childhood exerts a powerful force on his present day relationship. Drawn in his inimitable style, written with wry wit and humor,One Dirty Treeis another reason why Noah Van Sciver is one of the best cartoonist of his generation.
