A graphic novel for foodies

Do you guys ever read graphic novels? I first found out about Lucy Knisley when I read French Milk, her memoir about taking a six-week trip to Paris with her mom. She's a funny writer, so I was psyched to see that she just came out with a new book, Relish, which chronicles her food adventures, as the daughter of a chef, from New York to Mexico to Venice to Japan. I just ordered it from Amazon and am looking forward to devouring it this weekend.

P.S. Five best graphic novels.

Oh I love Lucy Knisleys work - I found out about her through an awesome illustrated recipe she made, so I'd definitely like to read that graphic novel about her foodie life!

Loved French Milk. What a great topic for graphic novels. I recently bought my daughter a picture book of daily in Paris, and all the pictures were of croissants or baguettes. Yum!

Love, Lucy! She's actually the daughter of my mom's good friend Georgia (the mom she refers to in the book, of course.) Would be fun to have an interview from her on Cup of Jo!

This post made me order French Milk without even my usual review-browsing. I miss France! And I love graphic novels, they are so fun.

Alyssa said...

Yes! I just got this book in the mail yesterday (and French Milk too!!)! I managed to get a few pages in during my commute, and I'm hooked. I LOVE graphic novels and it makes me glad to know there are many other women my age who also read them!

Happy reading!
