Anya Ulinich turns her sharp eye toward the strange, often unmooring world of "grown-up" dating in this darkly comic graphic novel. After her fifteen-year marriage ends, Lena Finkle gets an eye-opening education in love, sex, and loss when she embarks on a string of online dates, all while raising her two teenage daughters. The Vampire of Bensonhurst, the Orphan, Disaster Man, and the Diamond Psychiatrist are just a few of the unforgettable characters she meets along the way.

A mature voice, a truly adult story.

An addictive read. Ulinich's voice is confident and always from the heart. Good for fans of Lynda Barry, Maira Kalman or Ulli Lust.

Thoroughly enjoyable. It's autobiographical fiction in comics format, and it is very well done.
