Need More Love : A Graphic Memoir - Aline Kominsky Crumb

Need More Love

A Graphic Memoir

Sorry, the book that you are looking for is not available right now.

We did a search for other books with a similar title, and found some results for you that may be helpful.

Aline Kominsky-Crumb, one of the earliest female cartoonists, presents a collection of her own highly inventive and daring artwork from over four decades, along with unusual photographs and memorabilia.

The road to becoming an underground-comics legend begins with Komisky-Crumb as a nice Jewish girl from Long Island, carries her to Greenwich Village in the 1960's, and to California, land of hippy cartoonists, and on to a more or less sedate life with hubby(equally legendary R. Crumb) and daughter, Sophie.

Her funny/sad tales show a woman bewildered by her place in society and determined to find her own way.

These stories touch on every phase of her existence from childhood, to sexual obsessions, food, motherhood and, of course, her art. The book includes sharp vignettes of the Movers and Shakers - and the jerks - of the art and music worlds since the sixties.

    Comments about Need More Love:

    Wife of Robert Crumb though it's sad to have to introduce her that way. Illustrated and written autobiography,funny, self deprecating comic artist from the 60's and still around today. Aline's art might seem garish but it speaks volumes about her experience as an artist, wife and mother. She deserves more recognition! Buy it as a gift for any woman in your life over 35 and any men who are interested in feeling a woman's life experience.
