How to Be Happy
is a New York Times Best Selling book that we are already reprinting! Here's what some critics have recently said about Eleanor's fine work:
"…her stories often feature tremendous longing and sadness, but they also lushly suggest what a blessing it is to be alive and in the world. She presents, in short, a more realistic picture of what it means to be a human, with our ever-present mind/body tug-of-war, than almost anyone else out there making art.
" – Hillary Brown, BoingBoing
"That's Davis' sensibility. In her roundabout way, she dramatizes not the prospect of happiness, but the promise of it. Her natural territory is found in all the funny and tragic effects of that promise." – Etelka Lehoczky, NPR
So get in a cab or in the subway car and head to Desert Island Comics, they've got that fancy new Jim Woodring sign!
