Aline Kominsky-Crumb, one of the earliest female cartoonists, presents a collection of her own highly inventive and daring artwork from over four decades, along with unusual photographs and memorabilia. The road to becoming an underground- comics legend begins with Komisky-Crumb as a nice jewish girl from Long Island, carries her to Greenwich Village in the 1960's, and to California, land of hippy cartoonists, and on to a more or less sedate life with hubby(equally legendary R. Crumb) and daughter, Sophie. Her funny/sad tales show a woman bewildered by her place in society and determined to find her own way. These stories touch on every phase of her existence from childhood, to sexual obsessions, food, motherhood and, of course, her art. The book includes sharp vignettes of the Movers and Shakers - and the jerks - of the art and music worlds since the sixties.

Best known as underground comics doyen R. Crumb's wife, Kominsky Crumb is a prolific and trailblazing comics autobiographer. In this freewheeling memoir, she chronicles a peripatetic life, starting with the step from a 1950s Long Island childhood to hippie days on the Lower East Side and in San Francisco, where she fell in with the nascent underground comics scene and met Crumb. Disillusioned with America in the early 1990s, the couple emigrated to the south of France, where they now live in a medieval chateau. Kominsky Crumb juxtaposes prose reminiscences with autobiographical strips from the periods under discussion, and besides her solo comics efforts, collaborative comics "jams" with her husband, some of her paintings, photographs of friends and family, and memorabilia appear. Although her raw, messy drawing style and no-holds-barred content are off-putting to many comics fans, there is no denying the potency of her confessional comics. Readers drawn to this volume to learn more about Crumb are likely to come away from it with a newfound appreciation of his talented spouse. Gordon Flagg
