Made this for a friend last week. One of the times that Woody Allen was on Dick Cavett they were talking about the idea of a perfect work of art, and one of the examples Cavett used was a story by Jean Stafford. That was the first I'd ever heard of her.
Cover illustration inspired by her story "In the Zoo."
Read my latest published comic, "The First Literary Work of Honoré de Balzac," in the new Smoke Signals, the free all-comics newspaper printed and distributed by the indefatigable Gabe Fowler at Desert Island. The issue debuted at FABCGN (which totally went off). You can pick up SS3 at the store and other places, like maybe your favorite bar.
