really liked it
bookshelves: food, auto-bio-memoir

I really liked this exuberant, fun and thoughtful book told with relish about the life of a comic artist raised by foodies, a gourmet chef and a lover of fine dining, great meals. It's a memoir (and read Seth Hahne's great review as usual for one with greater detail, and just.. more relish!) with food and maybe her mom as central figures... positive, joie de vivre, happy, all these things... WITH recipes that emerge out of the stories, out of her life! Fine, fun, colorful, joyful drawings... and she focuses on two great cities I love, NYC and Chicago (oh, and other cities she has lived and visited, too...). She is like many comic artists I like a grad of the Chicago At Institute, still young with so much accomplished and this is great... highly recommend, especially if you are a foodie... or, at least, love to eat!!
