The Bindery is excited to present a special evening with Paul Madonna as he introduces his latest release Close Enough for the Angels, along with a gallery showing of his iconic work. Please join us at The Bindery!

Emit Hopper was a one-hit wonder—twice. First as a rock and roller in the 80s, then as a literary darling in the 90s. Now it's twenty years later, and despite his desire to remain a simple laundromat owner, stardom has found him once again. As he’s drawn back into the limelight he meets Julia, a former celebrity chef with an enigmatic past. But when she disappears while hiking with two other women, Emit finds himself chasing down a mystery that promises to leave him forever changed.

From the artist and author of All Over Coffee and Everything is its own reward, Paul Madonna uses his signature blend of drawing and storytelling to deliver a beautiful and entertaining novel filled with suspense, surprise, and humor.

With over one hundred lush and haunting drawings, this full-length, character-driven story is a fresh and innovative reinvention of the illustrated novel.



«Madonna captures snapshots in time as he explores the relationship between image and text… that's so gorgeously rendered in Madonna's precise yet fluid pen-and-ink style, it feels like it could be anywhere and everywhere.» — Publisher's Weekly

— Paul Madonna is the award-winning artist and writer. He is the creator of the series All Over Coffee, which ran in the San Francisco Chronicle for twelve years, and is the author of four books. His drawings and stories have appeared internationally in numerous books and journals as well as in galleries and museums, including the San Francisco Contemporary Jewish Museum, the Oakland Museum of California, and an upcoming solo exhibition at the Legion of Honor in San Francisco. Paul is a former editor for therumpus.net, has taught drawing at the University of San Francisco, and frequently lectures on creative practice, even when not asked. He holds a BFA from Carnegie Mellon University, and was the first (ever!) Art Intern at MAD magazine, for which he proudly received no money.
