Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Phoebe Gloeckner's first book collects her highly praised autobiographical accounts of a teenage girl's loss of innocence through sex, drugs, rape, and AIDS.

Review:

"Gloeckner is a legendary figure in underground comics....Gloeckner's drawings combine a labored precision with a wild, often satirical expressiveness."-Roxane Farmanfarmanian, Publisher's Weekly, August 31, 1998

Review:

"Phoebe Gloeckner's A Child's Life and Other Stories is as perfect a publishing project as we're likely to see this calendar year: it collects short stories, both new and previously-published, from a period of over 20 years; the stories are consistently interesting and some are downright excellent; and the experience of reading all of the work in one place creates an artistic whole greater than the sum of its parts."-Tom Spurgeon, The Comics Journal, No. 207, September 1998
