Elle Decor recommends SCENES FROM AN IMPENDING MARRIAGE

“Love and Marriage” / Elle Decor / Peter Terzian / March 4, 2011

Adrian Tomine’s wry graphic novels about alienated, hapless twentysomethings have been compared to the stories of Alice Munro and Raymond Carver. But his latest book began life as a party favor. Scenes from an Impending Marriage, originally written for the guests at Tomine’s wedding, is a funny, charming memoir of organizing a ceremony that will make both the grumpy artist and his cheerful fiancée happy. Tomine, a frequent cover illustrator for The New Yorker, takes the couple through the painfully familiar pitfalls of wedding planning, from registering for housewares to hashing out the invite list.
