About the Author

Lucy Knisley is the author and illustrator of beloved graphic novels about memory, identity, food, and family. Her Alex Award-winning graphic novel, Relish: My Life in the Kitchen, tells the story of her childhood steeped in the food industry. It was a New York Times bestseller and has been translated into five languages. Her travelogues (French Milk, An Age of License, and Displacement) and web comic series (Stop Paying Attention) have been lauded by critics, and her combined work has built her a devoted readership for her honest and thoughtful true-life stories. Her recent graphic memoirs include Something New: Tales from a Makeshift Bride. She lives and works in Chicago, with her new husband.

Reviews

"[This] graphic-novel memoir from First Second Books follows Lucy Knisley's own decade-long saga toward the altar, as well as her own keen and amusing observations on the marital industry she curated along the way." --The Washington Post

"It's digressive, meandering and entirely charming -- her comics read like a letter one treasures."--The New York Times

"She artfully makes the details of her own experiences appeal to different readers, but it's the emotion behind her writing and beautiful style that manages to be both sweet and brutally honest." --AV Club

"Knisley is a wonderful creator and artist, and someone who clearly was made to be married. This book is as sweetly romantic as it is manically comedic."--Boing Boing
