Product Details

Praise

“Phoebe Gloeckner… is creating some of the edgiest work about young women’s lives in any medium.”—The New York Times
 
“One of the most brutally honest, shocking, tender and beautiful portrayals of growing up female in America.”—Salon
 
“It’s the most honest depiction of sexuality in a long, long time; as a meditation on adolescence, it picks up a literary ball that’s been only fitfully carried after Salinger.”—Nerve.com
 
“I thought that Phoebe Gloeckner’s story ‘Minnie’s Third Love’ was one of the best comic stories I ever read in my life … a masterpiece … she’s a great artist.”—R. Crumb, cartoonist
 
“Intensity, thy name is Gloeckner… A complicated combination of standard written-through passages, comic strips and illustrations; it’s about as far you can go into the realm of the novel without entirely relying on prose… A tough, necessary read.”—Rolling Stone
 
“Phoebe Gloeckner’s finely crafted drawings and emotionally powerful story-telling ability combine in this terrific collection to tell us painful, sympathetic, and hilariously human truths.” —Bill Griffith, creator of Zippy the Pinhead
 
“A pitch-perfect, hauntingly beautiful, deeply empathic conjuring of female adolescence.”—Bust magazine
 
“Minnie is one of the most believable teenage protagonists ever written, a complicated, contradictory child posing as a woman. Her ‘Diary’ is a page-turner of a very high order and a tour de force of emotional intensity and damage.”—The San Francisco Chronicle
