Reviews

"Kidd's book is at once quotably quippy...and unmistakably melancholy." -- San Francisco Chronicle

"Funny and innovative." -- Atlanta Journal and Constitution

"Kidd's funhouse designs never fail to thrill. The same could be said of this unexpected, terrific novel by the designer himself.... It's a pleasure to find that Kidd's writing is as meticulous and energized as his book jackets; still more a pleasure to discover in Kidd an irresistible comic voice that sounds so modern, and so right, even as it re-creates the undergraduate life of the late 1950s....THE CHEESE MONKEYS is, we realize, a manifesto for design itself. But it's more, too, thanks to Kidd's knack for disarmingly left-field observations....Like the provocative Sorbeck, Kidd, in this comic gem, teaches us a thing or two about how to look at the world." -- Los Angeles Times

Kidd's novel is a witty, satirical take on academia, faculty art shows...and, of course, graphic design." -- Library Journal
