"[A] loopy, charming fantasy... Part graphic novel, part extended New Yorker cartoon, After the Fall is more surreal than social realism.... With its echoes of Salinger's Glass family, as well as any in a Wes Anderson film, Alan's eccentric clan is memorably strange and winning...." -- Kate Tuttle - Boston Globe "Mad, brilliant, stunning and hilarious...I simply adore it!" -- Lisa Lutz, author of The Spellman Files "Victoria Roberts is wonderful! And so is her madcap journey through the ups and downs of today's New York. After the Fall is written and illustrated with all the wit and irrepressible glee that makes her New Yorker cartoons such a treat." -- Kevin Baker, author of Strivers Row, Dreamland, and Paradise Alley "A total delight." -- Roz Chast, author of What I Hate "After the Fall is one of a kind. With her distinctive, intelligent drawings and tongue-in-cheek humor, legendary cartoonist Victoria Roberts has crafted a delightfully quirky coming-of-age fantasy for adults. I couldn't put it down." -- Patricia Bosworth, Vanity Fair Contributing Editor and author of Jane Fonda: The Private Life of a Public Woman
