Mr. Brown takes another step closer to the mainstream with this 352 page collection published by Touchstone, a division of Simon & Schuster. Subtitled, "A Memoir in Slices," this volume consists of a dozen pieces of various lengths, all rendered in his trademarked scratchy pen & ink style. Some of these have seen print before, most notably, the lead off "These Things, These Things," but this collection is mostly new. It's pretty much a "must have" item for all pre-existent Jeffrey Brown fans. It is, however, especially well suited to serve as a jumping on point to those readers who have yet to experience his work. While the story content on display here will be especially appealling to twenty-somethings, Jeffrey Brown is a natural born cartoonist, and his work is unfailingly engaging to anyone who enjoys reading comics.
