Lucy Knisley, graphic novelist, writes and draws about her engagement and marriage to her on and off boyfriend John. Told through pictures and words, we follow the ups and downs of their relationship and the planning of an unorthodox and unique wedding in modern day. This is another delightful graphic novel for Knisley who has done several travelogues, a web comic series and her wonderful graphic memoir Relish- My Life in the Kitchen. Looking forward to her next project!
I'm enjoying it more than the last book about Shakespeare I read. That was Will in the World which struck me as far too speculative and tried to find text for each supposed incident in Shakespeare's life. This one is less speculative and less intent on finding his life reflected in his work.
Norman Lear, TV/film producer writes about his life and shows how even growing up in the poorest of circumstances that sometimes life gets better with hard work, ambition and talent. Not happy to just get rich, he has not left his life go by without impacting others by becoming a philanthropist and getting involved in political causes.

A nice, timely read, although it's a bit dated, especially, unfortunately his climate change descriptions. Things are even worse at Glacier National Park and throughout the USA.
