Back of the book

A reader wrote me after he got his copy of the new book “APPEELING” and mentioned that he really like the second quote on the back cover. Here are both of the quotes:

“Bo Nanas has a unique perspective on human society, a view that offers ample opportunity for warped commentary of the satirical kind.”
– R.C. HARVEY, noted comics historian and critic

“My Uncle John draws pictures and then you laugh.”
– BRITTNEY, niece

Obviously I paired them up for maximum comedic output.

The first one is from a review Bob Harvey did of my first book “Monkey Meets World” for The Comics Buyer’s Guide.

The second quote is not a review of either book; it’s how my niece described me to a teacher, probably in Kindergarten.

Brittney’s was such a great quote that I’ve always remembered it and I’m thrilled that I finally got a chance to use it.

(By the way, she’s 19 years-old now.)

(BTW#2, I also used her name for the character of the pint-sized con man Brittney of the Squirrel Scouts.)

(BTW#3, she is also nothing like the pint-sized con man Brittney of the Squirrel Scouts…except for the blond part…and at one time, when she was younger, she was indeed “pint-sized.”)

    Is she the niece I met down here in DC? Did we go to 5 Guys with her?

    Yep, that’s her.

    It’s a hilarious quote! I didn’t even catch that the Squirrel Scout connection. There is more depth to this ‘Bo Nanas’ than I first thought…

    It all very, very deep. Levels upon levels…
