Additional Details

"Lucy Knisley loves food. The daughter of a chef and a gourmet, this talented young cartoonist comes by her obsession honestly. In her forthright, thoughtful, and funny memoir, Lucy traces key episodes in her life thus far, framed by what she was eating at the time and lessons learned about food, cooking, and life. Each chapter is bookended with an illustrated recipe-- many of them treasured family dishes, and a few of them Lucy's original inventions" -- from publisher's web site.

Picked it up...

put it down a lot. I don't know, I guess it just didn't take me anywhere I really wanted to be. That's hard to do, but I have come to even expect that from a graphic novel.

interesting format for the content

The graphic novel format is what makes this interesting - as a more conventional narrative it would have been fairly ordinary (in my opinion, at least).

Food Lover's - the perfect graphic novel for you

A new publishing wave in graphic novels continues with the delightful and well done book RELISH. Fans of the Oishinbo manga, or The Dirt Candy Cookbook will delight in this food, comic memoir.
