Recommended for: people with a lot of time and very good vision

Comparisons to "The Principles of Uncertainty"? I want to read it! But I can't. I like visual storytelling, I like Drawn and Quarterly, I like diaries, I like women comics artists, I like Montreal, but mama mia -- I also like white space, and this doesn't have any!! The rave reviews on Goodreads are causing me a lot of guilt for sending this back to CML without finding out what this "daily life of an artist" is like, but I'm going to anyway. Maybe I can access Julie Doucet in smaller doses some other way.

Nonetheless, I'm in awe that she created this -- so meticulously documented an entire year in all its mundane and exciting detail -- AND THEN TRANSLATED IT FROM FRENCH! This would be a good personal exercise (the daily reflection, not the translation necessarily). I'm thinking also of Lynda Barry's "100 Demons."
