New & Noteable: Lisa Hanawalt's Hot Dog Taste Test

- Out today, June 14th - 

From the James Beard award-winning cartoonist and design/producer of Netflix's Bojack Horesman comes Hot Dog Taste Test; a delicious - and necessary - venture into the world of food, anthropomorphized animals, and the brilliant mind of artist Lisa Hanawalt. Tackling subjects ranging from the pomposity of foodie subculture, to the horrors of using public restrooms, Hanawalt's second book with Drawn and Quarterly is a hilarious assortment of cartoons, doodles, and fully-realized stories that illustrate life in all its beautiful, embarrassing, and at times exaggerated glory.

Praise for Hot Dog Taste Test 

"We are so lucky to get these peeks into Lisa Hanawalt's brain and stomach. The amount of joy in her gleefully pervy illustrations makes me happier to be alive. I aspire to the level of enthusiasm she seems to derive from examining how stupid it is to be a person!" - Tavi Gevinson, Editor of Rookie

"The cartoons evoke an idiosyncratic absurdity akin to Roz Chast’s work (“Baking tip: keep your sweet tooth away from your salt molar”)... Hanawalt’s self-aware humor (with a side order of deeply affecting personal stories) will whet anyone’s appetite." - Publishers Weekly, Starred Review

"Lisa Hanawalt is the Matisse of the buffet line, the O'Keeffe of the fishball and the Vermeer of the pigeon with a hot dog in its beak. Also: horses." - Jonathan Gold, Food Critic and Pulitzer Prize Winner

"Lisa Hanawalt is my favourite funny artist. Her special brand of humour hits me directly where I live, even though I never told her where I live." - Jaime Hernandez, Author of Love and Rockets

"Lisa Hanawalt has an amazing ability to make the mundane disturbing and the strange seem normal. Also, her baking tips are solid" -. David Chang, Founder of Momofuku Restaurants & Lucky Peach Magazine

"Frankly speaking, you should get off your buns and go buy this book — you'll relish it". Amy Sedaris
