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

Hanawalt has a messed-up sense of humor and I love her for it.
E. Bradley
I had a bookseller sit me down and make me read the first few pages of this book in the store.

Anyway, go pick up this book, change your life around, and remember good things can happen.

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?!)

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

This may be the most influential piece of literature in the past three centuries. This beautiful work is just bursting at the seems with succulent imagery and figurative language. This is a must read for everyone over the age of 15 1/2 and I believe it will soon be added to the AP list. I urge all who read this review to run out to your local book store or set up an account on Amazon and buy this book immediately. You won't be disappointed.

This is the most expansive work of Lisa's that I've seen and fans of hers will think it's awesome. Her illustration style is always fun and unique, and it's interesting to see her jump from medium to medium, mirroring her tendency to jump between topics and tones. Some really funny material, and always with a modesty and self-awareness that's absent from almost anything else I see published. Hooray LH!

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.

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!
