Mimi Pond's latest in The Cut's Book Club

“9 Books We’re Reading This Month: The Cut's July Book Club” / The Cut, New York Magazine / Dayna Evans / July 31, 2017

I’ve never been much of a graphic-novel person, mostly due to lack of exposure and not knowing where to start. If that sounds like you, too, The Customer Is Always Wrong is a great place to jump in. The book is the follow-up to Mimi Pond’s first memoir, Over Easy, and it does something I didn’t know graphic novels could do: it made me depressed, excited, nostalgic, and sentimental all at the same time. If stories of the Oakland restaurant business, drug deals gone wrong, and repeated failures to launch sound like your thing, don’t be afraid of an unfamiliar medium.
