And in case you want to know what other people are saying about the book, here are some blurbs I pulled off ye olde back cover:

"Funny, rich, and with a clear affection for its cast of kooky characters, this book is alive with the gritty promise of youth."—Wendy Lawless, Chanel Bonfire

"I loved this book. In fact, I loved it so much that I was totally going to buy it for your birthday. But I don't think you should wait that long for the chance to be teleported via Mimi Pond's astonishing x-ray vision into a carefully detailed moment from her own past - when hippies were turning into punk rockers and she was an art student turning into a waitress in a diner full of hilarious characters. In addition to being a great cartoonist, she's a great observer of life and a great storyteller."—Merrill Markoe, author of Cool, Calm, and Contentious

"Mimi Pond's hilarious, sassy wit and skillful illustrations in Over Easy served me a delicious slice of life in 1970s California with a side of brainy observations. I laughed out loud and enjoyed every last bite of it."—Charlotte Caffey, rock goddess

“As funny and warm-hearted as a memoir about a bunch of punks, drug dealers, hippies, and art school dropouts screwing in the 1970s can get. Mimi Pond’s coming-of-age graphic novel, Over Easy, is a delicious charmer.”—Jami Attenberg, author of The Middlesteins
