Phoebe Gloeckner was born in Philadelphia and raised in San Francisco. Her comics first appeared in underground publications when she was in her teens. Gloeckner is also author/illustrator of the critically acclaimed Diary of a Teenage Girl, published by North Atlantic Books in 2003. In addition to paintings and comics, she has made award-winning short films.
"I thought that Phoebe Gloeckner's story, 'Minnie's Third Love, ' was one of the best comic stories I ever read in my life ... a masterpiece. She is one of the best, which is interesting, seeing as: A.) She's a cute girl, B.) She's not a very prolific artist ... two factors which, one would assume, would be a hindrance to great art. But it's always a mystery, what makes great art ... there, I said it ... she's a great artist." --R. Crumb, cartoonist "Phoebe Gloeckner's illustrations for The Atrocity Exhibition were superb--wonderful line and shading of which Durer would have approved--several were absolute tours de force." --J.G. Ballard, author of Crash and The Atrocity Exhibition "Many cartoonists today mine their personal lives for subject matter. Phoebe Gloeckner achieves what few of them can; she makes the autobiographical universal. Her finely crafted drawings and emotionally powerful story-telling ability combine in this terrific collection to tell us painful, sympathetic, and hilariously human truths. Read this book. Find out why comics are art." --Bill Griffith, creator of Zippy the Pinhead
