A Foodie's New Graphic Novel

French Milk

I'm thoroughly charmed by the new graphic novel French Milk (Touchstone), in which 23-year-old New Yorker Lucy Knisley documents a six-week trip to Paris with her mom through drawings, photographs and musings written in speech balloons. Her take on the city is a food-filled one—besides full-fat French milk, she adores Ladurée pastries (over Pierre Hermé's), ice cream from Berthillon in flavors like cerise (cherry) and pain d’épice (gingerbread) , and Christine Ferber jams. I also love that Knisley drops in honest worries about her future—she diagrams a panic attack at one point—and offers a moving, creative look at those shaky first steps toward adulthood.
