Reviews

"A sublimely evocative depiction of California in the 70s." --Guardian Best Graphic Novels of 2014

"For lovers of tawdry tales from the '70s, told with smarts and sensitivity, Over Easy is a gold mine." --Los Angeles Times

"This graphic memoir captures the funky ethos of the time, when hippies, punks and disco aficionados mingled in a Bay Area at the height of its eccentricity...Theres an intoxicating esprit de corps to a well-run everyday joint like the Imperial Cafe and never has the delight in being part of it been more winningly portrayed." --Salon.com Ten Spectacular Graphic Novels from 2014

"Her lines are unpretentious and airy, and her people aren't overwhelmed by their affectations; Pond can capture facial expressions with a line or two." --NPR

"Pond's fantastic new graphic memoir, Over Easy, tells the colorful story of her years employed at a restaurant in Oakland." --USA Today Pop Candy

"Surprisingly tender." --Entertainment Weekly
