Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“Sweet, funny, and refreshing. —Trina Robbins, author of From Girls to Girrrlz”
Eric Reynolds
“In the Nov. 3 issue of Seattle's Stranger newspaper, Monkey Food made the top ten local non-fiction bestseller list at No. 6.”
Girlfriends
“Forney's pro-bisexual politics and endearing drawings have been benefiting the renowned Northwestern alternative weekly The Stranger for years.”
The Stranger
“Forney composes big, beautiful scenes, sometimes sketching whole narratives in a single panorama.”
Feminist Bookstore News
“Ellen Forney is a major new cartooning talent.”
Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Affectionate and gently ironic, Forney's popular, Seattle-based autobiographical comics strip, "I Was Seven in '75," celebrates all the wacky details of growing up middle American in the era of disco. This collection of Forney's work reads like a family scrapbook, recounting the painfully funny trials of Forney, her post-hippie parents and her freckled older brother. Here are true stories about parents who throw pot parties and take the family to spend the summer at a nudist colony. With wry, matter-of-fact nostalgia and a slap-dash, expressive cartooning style, the author recounts raw-food fads and getting caught reading Judy Blume's steamy novel Forever. Forney's own work sometimes takes a page out of Blume's classics, recounting the pleasures and trials of preadolescence. She also has a knack for pointing out the cleverness (bean-bag chairs, the Bionic Woman) and silliness (black-and-white shag carpet) in the inventions of the times. Sprinkled throughout are one-page illustrated treatises on favorite pastimes (e.g., the "Pull My Finger" fart game) and fashion Dos (rainbow pants, feathered hair)--there apparently were no fashion Don'ts in the '70s. Forney's "just yesterday" storytelling style exactly captures the weird fun of those chaotic, colorful times. (Dec.) Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.

    Hilarious!

    This book makes me wonder what my Mom went through with in the 70s. Even if some things in the book are a little unecessary, it's very funny and I couldn't put the book down. I enjoy reading comic strips and this is one comic book that is must for teenagers.
