San Francisco Chronicle on The Customer is Always Wrong

“Mimi Pond’s graphic novel memoir at home in Oakland” / San Francisco Chronicle / Peter Hartlaub / August 14, 2017

Mimi Pond is an incredible storyteller in any medium, most famously as a TV writer for “The Simpsons” as well as “Designing Women” and “Pee-Wee’s Playhouse.”

But the greatest depths of melancholy, tragedy and humor are found in her quasi-memoir graphic novels, starting with “Over Easy” (2014) and now with “The Customer Is Always Wrong,” about an artist named Madge and a rogues’ gallery of restaurant customers wandering through Oakland in the 1970s.

Pond is featured Thursday, Aug. 17, at the Starline Social Club, in a book event sponsored by Pegasus Books.
