The ninth chapbook in Booklyn’s series, Idaville by Emily Blair is an illustrated short story about a boy detective who never grew up and a girl who did. For Leroy, solutions have always been as easy as flipping to the back of the book, but he knows he can’t crack his new case without his partner Sally at his side. Will he find her again, and if he does, will she help him? 

Emily Blair has an MFA in Art from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. She now lives in Brooklyn. She creates comic books now and then and artists’ books, which are in a number of university library collections and have been exhibited at Western Exhibitions Gallery in Chicago. In 2006, she received a Xeric Foundation Self-Publishing Grant for her comic Living Statues, as well as an NYFA Fiction Fellowship. Her poetry has appeared in the Mississippi Review. Since 1994, she has been part of Next Question, a collaborative art group whose projects incorporate interviews. More of her work can be viewed here and here.
