French Milk by Lucy Knisley
Drawings, photographs and text record 6 weeks in Paris; the author turned 22 and her mother was 50 in 2007. "The title is partly in reference to my love for the fresh whole milk that I found so different from American processed dairy." The author explains that the title is also to recognize the significant influence of her mother on her life. It is an ode to great food and art and a document of the struggle we face growing into adulthood.
