Writer and Artist: Lucy Knisley
I was a little disappointed in this book. Lots of shopping and eating - okay, I can't say I really mind the eating as I myself do plenty of writing about eating. But I guess I was hoping for deeper cultural insights whereas most of Knisley's material is about... herself. The blurb on the back cover promises a personal look at the mother-daughter relationship but I'm not sure we really got much of that either. Perhaps it is honest and realistic. It's just not what I wanted.
