Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Best known as underground comics doyen R. Crumb's wife, Kominsky Crumb is a prolific and trailblazing comics autobiographer. In this freewheeling memoir, she chronicles a peripatetic life, starting with the step from a 1950s Long Island childhood to hippie days on the Lower East Side and in San Francisco, where she fell in with the nascent underground comics scene and met Crumb. Disillusioned with America in the early 1990s, the couple emigrated to the south of France, where they now live in a medieval chateau. Kominsky Crumb juxtaposes prose reminiscences with autobiographical strips from the periods under discussion, and besides her solo comics efforts, collaborative comics jams with her husband, some of her paintings, photographs of friends and family, and memorabilia appear. Although her raw, messy drawing style and no-holds-barred content are off-putting to many comics fans, there is no denying the potency of her confessional comics. Readers drawn to this volume to learn more about Crumb are likely to come away from it with a newfound appreciation of his talented spouse. --Gordon Flagg Copyright 2007 Booklist"
