    I pre ordered this book after having read and thoroughly loved Roberts's Miseryland culled from her Powdered Milk ongoing work got it today in the mail and immediately sat down and read it through and loved it It's about parenting art stability family and is touching and insightful and funny and absurd It's diary comics at their very best I love this book as much as I loved Miseryland I am such a fanHere's a bit of what it looks like's Keiler Roberts's website with volumes of Powdered Milk there for your viewing pleasure


  2. J.T. J.T. says:

    My past reviews of Roberts' books apply to Sunburning as well Her comics are unlike any others that I've read The short vignettes of family life work and introspection add up to than the sum of their parts Whereas past books centered on humorous interactions between Roberts and her child husband dog etc this one has a little at stake although there is still plenty of humor


  3. Hannah Garden Hannah Garden says:

    Keiler Roberts makes incredible fascinating extremely funny touching relatable comics and I would like to read like one billion of them right now


  4. Mari Mari says:

    This book was so good I had my husband who doesn't necessarily like comics read it right after me He laughed so hard I felt professional jealousy Highly recommended


  5. Karl Karl says:

    I found this book to be a deep meditation on the sacredness of family The short pieces acted as windows into a carefully crafted mother and daughter relationship with forays into husband and wife and adult child and mother relations The art is simple but it works really well with the sparse text At times this book was sad and funny and had a spirit of melancholy I can relate to being a parent of a young child and having to explain to them a difficult medical condition Roberts was thoughtful and delicate in the discussion of bi polar and it showed how much she loved her daughter and cared for an open and honest dialogue I can't put my finger on it but this work reminded me of some of John Porcellino's stuff I read it while listening to some new age hippie relaxation music but a good Coltrane album or Husker Du accompaniment would have been appropriate Very impressive Not overly arty More autobiographical and full of keen life observations


  6. Robert Robert says:

    This is a than worthy followup to Keiler Roberts' previous collection of comics Miseryland 2015 which I've read than once As ever her comics are delightfully funny poignantly melancholy remarkably observant to the uirks of daily domestic life Can't recommend Keiler's work enough

    This would be a wonderful introduction to Keiler Roberts's work although readers would also do well to check out her Powered Milk stories either online or better yet getting them in minicomics or book form through her directly We discussed this book on a recent episode of The Comics Alternative and I eagerly await her next effortsFirst read may 13 2017


  8. Mateen Mahboubi Mateen Mahboubi says:

    Roberts is as honest as ever and focuses a bit on her health in this one mental and physical The daughter Xia one of the things that I enjoy the most about this series is less prevalent but that is also addressed when Roberts tells us how she worries about the way that the way that the comics will be seen by Xia in the future and how they're already affecting her at school


  9. Courtney Courtney says:

    For part of it I was a little put off by the non linear style but I realized that linearity was an expectation that was unfair to the work I then thought of the style as ‘slice of life’ and enjoyed it much


  10. Kate Kate says:

    Eh I picked it up because the cover looked interesting but overall I felt let down They were short snippets of life but most of them were completely unrelatable to me I don't have a kid and I don't particularly love reading about a stranger's kid doing cutesy things Maybe Jeffrey Brown can pull that off but that's because I like the art style This art style is just I don't know as unrelatable as the snippets I guess I had a hard time reading the facial expressions from the sketchy style Still I enjoyed the short honest bits about depressionbipolarchronic fatigue so that saves it from being two stars Not my cup of tea
