I’m a freelance cartoonist/illustrator, and I also work as a radio host. I read all kinds of stuff, but I have to say that my favorite form is the comic novel. I’ve been working on one, tentatively titled Never Eat Lunch Alone, for just about ever. I’m also trying to sell a graphic novel version of one of my favorite coming-of-age books, The Rachel Papers by Martin Amis. Right now I’m reading the stories of V. S. Pritchett and Vladimir Nabokov. My favorite books of all time are probably Samuel Butler’s The Way of All Flesh, and Lucky Jim by Kingsley Amis. The comic rage that fuels those two novels is endlessly inspiring to me. I would like to become sort of female David Sedaris. Also - I just love the authors on xojane!
