Earlier this month, I raved about Pheobe Potts’ upcoming memoir, Good Eggs.
I LOVED this book. In Good Eggs, Phoebe Potts writes (and draws) candidly about her life – and specifically about her struggles to conceive and start a family with the husband Jeff. It’s now among my favorite graphic memoirs, right up there with the work of Jeffrey Brown and Alison Bechdel. Potts manages to be personal, honest and touching, yet possesses a great sense of humor that a lot of memoirs lack. Where other books are droll or drab, Good Eggs is lively. A story about fertility and trying to conceive isn’t something I’d necessarily think of for a 25-year-old guy like me, but this one proved me wrong.
I’m not the only one that loved the book, and I’m thrilled that it’s finally going to be available to the public on Tuesday.
With Good Eggs’ release only a day away (pick up the book at your local independent bookstore on September 21), Phoebe was kind enough to make a book and beer related comic for Brews and Books. In a single page, the comic does a great job showing the author’s cartooning style, along with Potts’ great vivacity and humor.
