Summary
  • A coming-of-age memoir and a chronicle of a Chicago community
  • This is veteran cartoonist Hollander's first long-form work; her coming-of-age story, starring the gangsters, the glamorous, the bed bugs, the (enviable) Catholic girls, the police, the jukebox, the fortune teller, and the blue Hudson the family car, always at the ready for frequent drives into better neighborhoods. Not only does this illustrated memoir give insight into how Hollander developed her style and wit, it s a chronicle of a Chicago community that has since disappeared into an expressway
  • Hollander shares her coming-of-age story, starring the gangsters, the glamorous, the bed bugs, the (enviable) Catholic girls, the police, the jukebox, the fortune teller, and the blue Hudson the family car, always at the ready for frequent drives into better neighborhoods. More than an insight into the origin of Hollander's style and wit, it is a chronicle of a Chicago community that has since disappeared into an expressway. -- adapted from back cover
