Reviews

"...hilarious and at times breathtakingly inventive."-- Wired

"In typically funny fashion, writer and cartoonist Lisa Hanawalt ... skewers foodie culture and offers up a buffet of personal stories."--Laura Pearson, Chicago Tribune

"...a riot of color, spilling with imagination, and simply a lot of fun."--Estelle Tang, Elle

"...Insouciant [and] irreverent drawings."--Nicole Rudick, Paris Review

"Hanawalt explores her anxieties and obsessions with candor and imaginative humor, pointing out the fantastical elements of everyday life, and injecting some magic (or, more likely, a weird pervy energy) into the mundane."--Monica Heisey, Broadly

"[Hanawalt's] irreverent illustrated musings ... depict things we all feel but rarely say out loud."--Sabrina Ford, Bust

"Lisa Hanawalt is the 21st century's voice of funny."--Hans Rollman, PopMatters

"The cartoons evoke an idiosyncratic absurdity akin to Roz Chast's work... Hanawalt's self-aware humor (with a side order of deeply affecting personal stories) will whet anyone's appetite."--Publishers Weekly Starred Review

"Lisa Hanawalt has an amazing ability to make the mundane disturbing and the strange seem normal. Also, her baking tips are solid."--David Chang, Founder of Momofuku Restaurants & Lucky Peach Magazine

"We are so lucky to get these peeks into Lisa Hanawalt's brain and stomach. The amount of joy in her gleefully pervy illustrations makes me happier to be alive. I aspire to the level of enthusiasm she seems to derive from examining how stupid it is to be a person!"--Tavi Gevinson, Editor of Rookie

"Lisa Hanawalt is the Matisse of the buffet line, the O'Keefe of the fish ball, and the Vermeer of the pigeon with a hot dog in its beak. Also: horses."--Jonathan Gold, food critic and Pulitzer Prize Winner

"Lisa Hanawalt is my favourite funny artist. Her special brand of humor hits me directly where I live, even though I never told her where I live."--Jaime Hernandez, author of Love and Rockets
