About the Author:

Joel Orff: Joel’s first book Strum and Drang: Great Moments in Rock n’ Roll was nominated for the 2004 YALSA Booklist. The comic strip Great Moments in Rock n’ Roll’ has run weekly in the California paper Pacific Sun since 2005. Joel’s other books are Waterwise and Thunderhead Underground Falls.

From Publishers Weekly:

The cartoonist behind Strum and Drang: Great Moments in Rock 'n' Roll, Orff favors moments that are ripe with possibility. His first book-length narrative is a slight but charming evocation of such an instance, one that's particularly sweet. Jim and Emily are childhood friends who meet again, decades later, while on the rebound from breakups; they spend a day together hanging out on a lake, remembering playing in the water when they were younger, and a night at Emily's cabin on its shore. The setup is for a romance (and Orff supplies plenty of moments where you'd expect them to fall into each other's arms or to rip off each other's clothes), but this isn't that kind of story—it's a story about friendship and its particular intimacies, and the joys that people who've known each other forever can take in one another's company. Orff's drawings are rough, spacious and vaguely woodcut-like, savoring the odd crinkles of trees and ripples. An early scene shows Jim drawing his ex-girlfriend, adding detail with each line, and it underscores how carefully (and impressionistically) Orff observes his wobbly, scribbly characters and settings. His writing works the same way: there's no moment of revelation, and very little plot, but by book's end readers will understand the depth and dimensions of the bond between these characters.
