    Another wonderful series of autobiography or diary comics from Keiler Roberts. I reread Sunburning and Miseryland in preparation for this -- and in prep for interview Keiler for the podcast -- and one of the things that struck me was the evolution of Roberts's writing and storytelling. Chlorine Gardens struck me as more consciously structured than her previous books. And she engages more in longer-form storytelling than she did in Sunburning, and especially more than in her early Powdered Milk c Another wonderful series of autobiography or diary comics from Keiler Roberts.

    With the reading of this book I hereby re-declare that Keiler Roberts is my favorite cartoonist. Oh lord I needed that. My heart grew, I scream-laughed, and I felt good.

    The art didn't work for me. I couldn't get into the story and missed the drollness.
