...[A] sprawling, meditative graphic novel... [that] ripples with exuberance: [Lust] convincingly evokes her teenage feelings of fury and joy, and the small details of the way she experienced unfamiliar places for the first time. (Douglas Wolk - The New York Times)
A youthful-looking 40-something now living in Berlin, Ulli Lust claims to have learned ‘more on the streets than in the books’… varying the rhythm and framing of her panels, populating them with her subtly stylized characters, she provides an unvarnished vision of male-female relations in which violence, drugs and sex perform a diabolical dance. And even though there are flashes of humor, this relentless story remains focused on the frustration of men and the pain of women. (Le Monde)
There is a rejection of the organization of the world, from organized faith to organized crime. It is about the pursuit of nihilism as a route to integrity. Ulli Lust has the intelligence to look at her life and make a book of it. (Eddie Campbell - (From Hell, Alec))
Great cartooning. (Kevin Huizenga - (Ganges, Gloriana))
Told with great confidence and uncomfortable frankness across a sprawling 450 pages, it is a coming-of-age narrative that inevitably places itself in the tradition of German travel literature, perhaps unwittingly joining the company of such august figures as Goethe and Hesse. (Matthias Wivel - The Metabunker)

This book feels like the real thing - it's the the book people can search out if they enjoyed "Persepolis". It's got a charismatic rebellous 'punky' female main character not too far removed from Marjane in "Persepolis". It's set in the 80s, and it's got an international outlook. In some ways I think it may even be a better book than "Persepolis". "Persepolis" had flawed minimal art in the early chapters and a few self-indulgent scenes that were mostly fixed in the brilliant movie version. Ulli Lust's book, on the other hand, just feels perfect. The writing and the vivid recollections are astonishing. And the art is loose and almost sketchy, but I wouldn't change a line. It just feels so right and perfect.Read more ›
The size was daunting at first, but as soon as I saw how raw and punk Mrs. Lust's drawings are I was hooked.
I wanted to get right into the meat of the story (without cutlery.) I felt this book portrayed the tenacity of the human spirit (despite the many mistakes and follies,) and how the most challenging situations can lead to unexpected triumphs (knowledge of the self.)
I was at the mercy of Ulli's exploits every time she'd cash in for the night, only to discover another sleazy Italian man trying to get in her pants. I was impressed by her expressive drawing style and brutally honest storytelling (as best she remembers.)
Having travelled through Europe & India on a lot of faith and very little money, I know that this book is as real as it gets, (despite not getting accosted or ogled at every corder.) I can honestly say that TITLDOTROYL is a ride well worth taking.

Ulli Lust is one of the most interesting cartoonists working today. This is a raw and compelling memoir that's been beautifully packaged by Fantagraphics.Published on August 13, 2013 by Shannon OLeary
