Trashed: An Ode to the Crap Job of All Crap Jobs

by Derf Backderf Author

An entertaining and informative graphic novel about US consumption and waste, from the perspective of a garbage collector. Fictionalized accounts, based on Derf's real life experiences, are mixed with disturbing statistics and odiferously evocative scenes that show the culture of trash collection, what it's like to do this job through icy winters and stinky summers, and even pokes at some potential improvements to our waste cycle. By the author/artist of the rightfully famous and award-winning comic My Friend Dahmer.
