Omtale Lena Finkle's Magic Barrel: A Graphic Novel
*A "New York Times "Notable Book* "Funny, painful, outrageous . . . Anya Ulinich is the David Sedaris of Russian-American cartoonists."--Gary Shteyngart 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. Evoking Louis C. K.'s humor and Amy Winehouse's longing and anguish, and paying homage to Malamud and Chekhov, " Lena Finkle's Magic Barrel" is a funny and moving story, beautifully told.
