SF – Love That Bunch Signing

Legendary cartoonist Aline Kominsky-Crumb discusses Love That Bunch with Hillary Chute at Green Apple Books on Friday, May 4, 2018 at 7:30 PM.

About Love That Bunch:
Aline Kominsky-Crumb redefined the Bay Area’s underground comix scene with unabashedly raw, dirty, unfiltered comics chronicling the thoughts and desires of a woman coming of age in the 1960s. Kominsky-Crumb didn’t worry about self-flattery: her darkest secrets and deepest insecurities were the fodder for groundbreaking stories. Her exaggerated comix alter ego, Bunch, is self-destructive and grotesque but crackles with the self-deprecating humor and honesty of a cartoonist confident in the story she wants to tell.

Collecting comics from the 1970s through today, Love That Bunch is shockingly prescient while still being an authentic story of its era. Kominsky-Crumb was ahead of her time in juxtaposing the contradictory nature of female sexuality with a proud, complicated feminism. Most important, she does so without apology.

One of the most famous and idiosyncratic cartoonists of our time, Kominsky-Crumb traces her steps as a Beatles-loving fangirl, an East Village groupie, an adult grappling with her childhood, and a 1980s housewife and mother. A new thirty-page story, “Dream House,” looks back on her childhood forty years later. Love That Bunch will be Kominsky-Crumb’s only solo-authored book in print. Originally published in 1990, this new expanded edition follows her to the present, including a foreword penned by the noted comics scholar Hillary Chute.

CA – Adjustment Day Signing

Author Chuck Palahniuk (Fight Club, Choke) appears at Vroman’s Bookstore on Sunday, May 6, 2018 from noon till 4:00 PM. Get tickets here…

People pass the word only to those they trust most: Adjustment Day is coming. They’ve been reading a mysterious book and memorizing its directives. They are ready for the reckoning.

Adjustment Day, the author’s first novel in four years, is an ingeniously comic work in which Chuck Palahniuk does what he does best: skewer the absurdities in our society. Smug, geriatric politicians bring the nation to the brink of a third world war in an effort to control the burgeoning population of young males; working-class men dream of burying the elites; and professors propound theories that offer students only the bleakest future.

Into this dyspeptic time a blue-black book is launched carrying such wisdom as:
Imagine there’s no God. There is no Heaven or Hell. There is only your son and his son and his son and the world you leave for them.

The weak want you to forgo your destiny just as they’ve shirked theirs.
A smile is your best bulletproof vest.

When Adjustment Day arrives, it fearlessly makes real the logical conclusion of every separatist fantasy, alternative fact, and conspiracy theory lurking in the American psyche. (WW Norton)

Event guidelines:

  • This is a signing only. Tickets for this event are available on Eventbrite.
  • Tickets include one copy of Adjustment Day to be picked up the day of the event at the time of check in.

NYC – Brothers of the Gun Signing + Art Exhibition

Brooklyn Public Library presents an evening with Molly Crabapple, illustrator and co-author with Syrian journalist Marwan Hisham, of Brothers of the Gun: A Memoir of the Syrian War on Tuesday, May 15th at 7:30 PM. Attendees are invited to explore the accompanying exhibition Molly Crabapple & Marwan Hisham: Syria in Ink, followed by an talk with Crabapple and a reception. Books will be available for purchase.

Brothers of the Gun is a bracingly immediate memoir of the Syrian war from its inception to the present by a young man coming of age and finding his voice as a journalist, whose friends traveled divergent paths through the carnage. An intimate lens into the century’s bloodiest conflict, and a profound meditation on kinship, home, and freedom. Illustrated with over 80 ink drawings by Molly Crabapple.

In 2011, Marwan Hisham and his two friends–fellow working-class college students–Nael and Tareq, joined the first protests of the Arab Spring in Syria, in response to a recent massacre. Arm-in-arm they marched, poured Coke into each other’s eyes to blunt the effects of tear gas, ran from the security forces, and cursed the country’s president, Bashar al-Assad. It was ecstasy. A long-bottled revolution was finally erupting, and freedom from a brutal dictator seemed, at last, imminent. Five years later, the three young friends were scattered: one now an Islamist revolutionary; another dead at the hands of government soldiers; and the last, Marwan, now a journalist in Turkish exile, trying to find a way back to a homeland reduced to rubble.

Molly Crabapple, an artist and writer based in New York, has drawn in Guantanamo Bay, in Abu Dhabi’s migrant labor camps, and with rebels in Syria, and received widespread praise for her illustrated memoir Drawing Blood. Crabapple is a contributing editor for Vice and has written for The New York Times, The Paris Review, and Vanity Fair. Her work is in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art.
