Editorial Reviews

Review

My Dirty Dumb Eyes is a zero-attention-span assemblage of surreal one-page drawings, clusters of gag cartoons ("How We Can Tell Martha Stewart's Drunk"), short comics stories, illustrated movie reviews and garish stoner tableaus. They add up to a wildly entertaining portfolio from an artist with a masterly painting and drawing hand, obsessions with animals and genitals, and a very weird, intentionally dopey sense of humor.” ―New York Times

“Read this book because it's funny, because it's beautiful, and because it will nourish the inner weirdo you've been keeping under wraps for too long.” ―NPR

“With its leitmotif blend of whimsy, wistfulness, and a touch of scatology, [My Dirty Dumb Eyes] is funny and life-of-the-party loud.” ―The Paris Review

My Dirty Dumb Eyes... is exactly as weird, obscene, hilarious, and gross as you might expect... It is also absurdly smart and sharp.” ―Slate

I had a bookseller sit me down and make me read the first few pages of this book in the store. Three pages in, I knew I had to own it. Hilarious, original, weird, and sweet. I'll be pushing this book on my friends for a while.

I was expecting something a little off the wall, and this book is definitely that. I actually laughed out loud while reading, so much so that I had to share the book with my boyfriend (who is currently getting a kick out of it.)

I have no doubt the author would approve of the title for my review. But don't be dismayed and think this book is all about potty talk. Not even close. It's smart and wildly appropriate - just not for all ages. (As an earlier reviewer said, 15 1/2 might be a good starting place - but I'd put it closer to 12 1/2, let the kids grow up a few years early.) The book is visually striking and can be read cover to cover and back again with plenty more to feast on for dessert. I only wish my review could be 1/100000 as good as this book. I recommend reading this by yourself because you will undoubtedly annoy the person near you as you go from slow chuckles, to silent contemplative smiles, to wild bursts of uncontrollable laughter. I can't wait for the next one. (There will be one right? RIGHT?!)

Lisa Hanawalt is the best. I've been a long-time fan of hers, and this most recent volume does not disappoint. Full of animals in sweaters, dogs wearing hats, excellently absurd movie reviews, and the trademark Hanawalt Charm, this is a must have for any coffee table or bookshelf in the know.

Flipping hilarious! And accessible. The dog jokes alone made my pals and parents bust up. I've seen Lisa Hanawalt's stuff all up in the McSweeney's zone..and dug it- but all Her action in one book is way more awesomer. More! More! Moah!

This is funny stuff. And I know funny. The art is funny too. So you have funny stuff and funny art all together in one package. It's like a scrumptious pie baked inside a scrumptious pie. For under $20 you get all that. Buy it.

I originally bought this for my girlfriend, I wanted to come off as you know cool and artsy, and what better way to do that than picking up My Dirty Dumb Eyes. My girlfriend loved it so much that she is still my girlfriend. She has read this on a plane, at the airport, inside of a cab, around the house: in the kitchen, taking a bath, in bed, anywhere where one might read - it's so versatile she even read parts of it upside-down!!! Because of this book our sex lives have never been better, my girlfriend is well on her way to becoming rich and famous, and I'm on my way to becoming an A-1 certified stay-at-home, dreams really can come true as long as you believe, and also as long as you read My Dirty Dumb Eyes! Some people like to say, "Hey wouldn't your life be just the same if you haven't read My Dirty Dumb Eyes?" And I answer that by laughing in their face, of course it wouldn't people! Come on! If I hadn't read My Dirty Dumb Eyes, my life would be a big pile of steaming dog feces, I know this for a fact as I have friends who haven't read it, and their life is a big pile of steaming dog feces. Don't believe me, fine. How 'bout a testimonial. Hey Pete, have you read My Dirty Dumb Eyes? "No, I haven't, I mean I would, but my life is such a big pile of steaming dog feces, I just don't know if I could." - Pete There you go people, first hand evidence. Anyway, go pick up this book, change your life around, and remember good things can happen.

I loved Hanawalt's comics in The Believer. They're strange and unpredictable and extremely funny. Now there's a whole book! Get it!
