In her own words: "born. bucolic childhood. culture-stuffed adolescence. played piano. stopped. danced. stopped. wrote. discarded writing. drew. reinstated writing. married Tibor Kalman and collaborated at iconoclastic yet successful design studio. wrote and painted children's books. worried. took up Ping-Pong. relaxed. wrote and painted for many magazines. cofounded the Rubber Band Society. amused. children: two. dog: one."
Sublime Kalman s elegantly witty and at times melancholy narrative runs arm in arm with her unmistakable paintings on a serendipitous romp through the history of the world. Vanity Fair Wildly original there s nothing else even remotely like it This hilarious, wise, and deeply moving volume [is] the ultimate picture book for grown-ups. O Magazine An odd treasure. Ariel Levy, The New York Times Book Review Within this work, as much literary as artistic, one finds the assurance (the certainty!) that the human condition is inescapable but not insurmountable. The New York Observer In her distinctive, muscularly whimsical paintings with sad-funny handwritten annotations, Kalman encounters, well, everything More personal than much of her previous work, the book is simultaneously idiosyncratic and universal. And utterly lovable. Culture + Travel This is a unique, warmly intelligent book for the enjoyment of artists, writers and anyone who delights in works of genuine imagination. L.K. Hanson, Minnesota Star Tribune My absolute favorite book of recent memory: an exquisite and delightful and peculiarly illustrated memoir about well, the search for the meaning of life. I will be giving this book to everyone I know. Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Eat, Pray, Love"
