Bechdel reviews Vandenburgh

bechdelnyt

For March 26 issue of the New York Times, Alison Bechdel, author of Fun House (which, to be completely honest, left me speechless), reviewed the book, A Pocket History of Sex in the Twentieth Century by Jane Vandenburgh.

As an occasional reviewer myself, I know how difficult it is to grasp the gist of a book in just a few sentences.  Bechdel does an awesome job, using her art to back up a few selected hightlights in the book, and thus creating something of a critical trailer that actually makes you want to go and read the book.

The paper also published a short accompanying piece, in which Bechdel explains why she agreed to do this review, and how she went about creating it.

(Since Mike turns out to have pointed this out to me in an email before I stumbled across it myself, he gets the customary tip of the hat)
