BUT HOW: Comics on Parenting Advice

Keiler Roberts draws comics about her kid and herself and her family and trying to do their best all together.

Do you have some advice?

We’re celebrating the publication this week of Keiler Roberts’ new book, Sunburning, out from awesome indie Koyama Press.

“Keiler Roberts’ autobiographical graphic memoir captures the feeling of being a parent as well as an artist and writer better than any book I’ve ever read. There are no cliffhangers or life lessons. It’s more about the texture of being alive: the melancholy, the unexpected small delights, and its unavoidable sense of aloneness. This book is written with insight, intelligence, and a deadpan sense of humor. I loved it.” — Roz Chast
