When We All Ate Wonderbread
Out of Stock
Nicole HollanderÆs internationally syndicated comic strip, Sylvia, ran for thirty years. When We All Ate Wonderbread is veteran cartoonist HollanderÆs first graphic novel, a coming-of-age story starring the gangsters, the glamourous, the bed bugs, the (enviable) Catholic girls, the police, the jukebox, the fortune teller, and the blue Hudsonùthe family car, always at the ready for frequent drives into better neighborhoods. Much of the milieu and many of the characters who inhabited HollanderÆs progressive comic strip, Sylvia, originated in her childhood neighborhood; not only does this illustrated memoir give insight into how Hollander developed her style and wit, itÆs a chronicle of a Chicago community that has since disappeared into an expressway.
