"An interesting little book. First comes the struggle to define exactly what it is; certainly it's a memoir, as Burian guides the reader through his travels and angst. But as to whether or not it is a graphic novel or an illustrated prose book, that's an entirely different question. The book combines both in heavy doses; many sections are carried strictly by Burian's cartooning, yet perhaps even more of the book is handwritten prose accompanying the pictures or even pushing them away completely. The confessional nature of the stories Burian tells here reminded me very much of the work of Jeffrey Brown, though I actually liked Burian's work better. Brown's work tends to be annoying and whiny, but Burian does a very good job of putting his problems on the page and not waving his dick at them. You see him, you see what's wrong with him, and he doesn't need to tell you just how big of a ****** up he might be at that moment. I really respected the way he handled those moments. I've become fairly inured to confessionals over the last few years, so it takes a lot for something in the genre to light me on fire. But if you like cartoonists like Brown, then I have no hesitations about recommending Burian for a reading experience you'd enjoy." --Marc Mason, "Comics Waiting Room"
