What to Do When I'm Gone - A...
A mother's advice to her daughter--a guide to daily living, both practical and sublime--with full-color illustrations throughout. One sleepless night while she was in her early twenties, illustrator/writer Hallie Bateman had a painful realization: her mom would die, and after she died she would be gone. The prospect was devastating, and also scary--how would she navigate the world without the person who gave her life? She thought about all the motherly advice she would miss--advice that could help her through the challenges to come, including the ordeal of losing a parent. The next day, Hallie asked her mother, writer Suzy Hopkins, to record step-by-step instructions for her to follow in the event of her mom's death. The list began: "Pour yourself a stiff glass of whiskey and make some fajitas" and continued from there, walking Hallie through the days, months, and years of life after loss, with motherly guidance and support, addressing issues great and small--from choosing a life partner to baking a quiche. The project became a way for mother and daughter to connect with humor, openness, and gratitude. It led to this book. Combining Suzy's wit and heartfelt advice with Hallie's quirky and colorful style, What to Do When I'm Gone is the illustrated instruction manual for getting through life without one's mom. It's also a poignant look at loss, love, and taking things one moment at a time. By turns whimsical, funny, touching, and above all pragmatic, it will leave readers laughing and teary-eyed. And it will spur conversations that enrich family members' understanding of one another.Show book
A Very Stable Genius
How do you poke fun at a man who’s so absurd he practically satirizes himself? Even two-time Pulitzer Prize–winning cartoonist Mike Luckovich admits it’s been a challenge covering the Cheeto-in-Chief in his internationally syndicated political cartoons. But Mike rose to the challenge, pulling no punches and stripping down Trump and his cronies with his signature wit and style. Covering Trump’s antics from the 2016 election through to the Mueller investigation, the cartoons in A Very Stable Genius tackle key moments in Trump’s political career, offering scathing insights on everything from his disastrous track record with women to his revolving-door cabinet to his suspiciously intimate relationship with a certain Russian leader. Woven through with searing commentary and personal anecdotes, Mike’s cartoons will shock and delight you, making you think as much as they make you laugh — when you’re not too busy being terrified.Show book

Also, on many of my trips (for taping shows anywhere across Canada and the USA) there would be a couple or three other people with us.

Snapshots of a Girl
A bold and frank memoir/graphic novel about a young lesbian, born to Turkish parents in Germany, who messily navigates her coming of age, and her coming out, in a number of locales and cultures – Germany, Turkey, the Netherlands, and America. By doing so, the book is a personal and very contemporary look at cultural and sexual politics; a modern take on dyke life, and the nuances of sexuality and cultural identity.Of course, our precedent in the lesbian-themed graphic novel is the bestselling Blue Is the Warmest Color. Where that book was an earnest (and tragic) love story, this one is lighter and more grounded in contemporary lesbian life; there is much self-deprecating humor as the narrator comes out to her parents (more than once) and navigates the dating world in different cultures.Author Beldan Sezen has a versatile style; she uses different approaches to the text and artwork on every page, making the story dynamic.Sezen is also a filmmaker and cartoonist, and regularly teaches workshops on illustration. She has exhibited her work widely, including in Amsterdam, London, Berlin, Wiesbaden, and Beirut.This book was originally published in Italy, and has been translated into English by the author herself.Show book
