A new book

image

I just got “Autobiographical Comics: life writing in pictures” by Elisabeth El Refaie, a senior lecturer at Cardiff University in the UK. It’s an academic book that discusses the work of lots of different artists (including me). It’s thrilling to be discussed alongside r.crumb, Marjane Satrapi, Joe Sacco, and Art Spiegelman. Coolest of all : it uses a drawing of mine from Everyday Matters as the cover art.

    What a fabulous cover for what sounds to be a really interesting book. Well done you for getting included in it…. and some!!! I have just about every book you’ve been involved in or written and I love them all (A Kiss is on my christmas list). Unfortunately though I think this one will have to be ordered from the library….I live in the UK…. Amazon UK’s price on it is almost £50 (about $90)…. a lot more than Amazon.com is selling it for. But I can wish can’t I?

    This thought occurs to me a couple of times a week…so I peek….”I wonder what Danny is doing?” That always makes me smile because we will probably never meet, and yet through your books and your blog you have touched my life. ~ Lynn
