"This is a continuation of Mimi Pond's book Over Easy, a memoir of her time working amongst the hippies and punks of the wisecracking, fast-talking, drug-taking Imperial Café. Pond's story is equal parts time capsule of late 1970s life in California - with its deadheads, punks, disco rollers, casual sex and drug use - and bildungsroman of a young woman from naïve, sexually inexperienced art-school dropout to self-aware, self-confident artist. Mimi Pond's chatty, slyly observant anecdotes create a compelling portrait of a distinct moment in time."-- Provided by publisher

A wonderful follow-up to "Over Easy" and a much more realized and satisfactory story. I consumed this book cover to cover in one sitting and enjoyed it hugely. I've been consuming a lot of graphic novels lately; this is one of the few that felt truly satisfying.
