New York Times-bestselling graphic memoirist Lucy Knisley (Relish) writes about her adorable DIY wedding!In 2010, Lucy and her long-term boyfriend John broke up. Three long, lonely years later, John returned to New York, walked into Lucy's apartment, and proposed. This is not that story. It is the story of what came after: The Wedding.DIY maven Lucy Knisley was fascinated by American wedding culture . . . but also sort of horrified by it. So she set out to plan and execute the adorable DIY wedding to end all adorable DIY weddings. And she succeeded. This graphic novel--clocking in at almost 300 pages of humor, despair, and eternal love--is the story of how Lucy built a barn, invented a whole new kind of photo booth, and managed to turn an outdoor wedding on a rainy day into a joyous (though muddy) triumph.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Knisley has documented episodes from her life in four previous graphic novels, and here she recounts her recent nuptials as well as the romantic turmoil, followed by months of preparation, that preceded them. A long game of will-they-or-won't-they played out before the author found herself suddenly, blissfully, and utterly cluelessly on the precipice of a tradition she'd long been somewhat wary of the wedding. Wanting to create a resource for other newlyweds-to-be, Knisley wrote this graphic novel while she planned for and DIYed the heck out of her big day. Spreads of wedding myths and traditions punctuate the book's chapters, with many of the author's own photos scattered throughout. Whether she's sharing moments that are sensitive, silly, or enraging, Knisley's full-color comics are clever, precise, and appealing as ever. All couples pondering potential lifelong partnerships and any celebrations thereof will find affirmation, recognition, and reassurance here. While the subject matter might limit her audience, Knisley keeps her voice and style true to their beloved forms. Sure to please her many enthusiastic fans.--Bostrom, Annie Copyright 2016 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: ""There's a difference," Knisley's bespectacled self says at the start of this breezy yet substantial graphic memoir, "between being a nerd, a fan, an enthusiast... and being an expert." By the end of her chirpy story about crafting the perfect ceremony for marrying her fiancé, John, Knisley has gone through all of those stages. She, and in some sense the reader, comes out the other end a near expert in the kind of artisanal, ultra-personalized, not-too-pricey wedding that crafty, non-trust-fund millennials could drown their social media accounts in documenting. Like the almost overwhelmingly twee wedding (a barn raising, handmade wood boxes for the guests, midnight poutine) that she plans, Knisley (Displacement, Relish: My Life in the Kitchen) has a knack for presenting a highly precise type of whimsy that stops just shy of precious overkill. The relentlessly bright tone and artwork power the narrative through its less riveting segments. Agent: Holly Bemiss, Susan Rabiner Literary Agency (May) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved."
