"MariNaomi is a true original. This sometimes harrowing tale of young love made me rock with laughter and wince with sympathetic mortification."--Armistead Maupin, author of "Mary Ann in Autumn" and "Tales of the City"

"This book isn't merely a laundry list of men that Mari has dated over the years; it's the earnest story of a young woman's tumultuous, hilarious and heartbreaking youth. It's also smart, funny, original and compulsively readable."--Julia Wertz, author of "Drinking at the Movies" and "The Fart Party Volumes 1 & 2"

""Kiss & Tell" gets love, sex, and everything in between exactly right. Reading MariNaomi's graphic memoir is like reading my own childhood journal--if my journal were extremely funny and well drawn."--Amy Bryant, author of "Polly"

"Despite offering an abundance of convenient stopping points, "Kiss & Tell" insists on not being put down until you've read every sordid detail. MariNaomi's romantic resume is extensive and messy, but it's a funny and rewarding wreck to watch."--Jeffrey Brown, author of "Clumsy" and "Funny Misshapen Body"

"Girlish innocence and disarming candor mark this graphic memoir. Whether she's writing about threesomes, foursomes or the possibility of moresomes, MariNaomi exudes a sweetness undefiled by experience.... Though there are some dark interludes, this is ultimately a celebration of a girl's life, from larva to wings."--Kirkus Reviews

"Picaresque, but down-to-earth, "Kiss and Tell, '' winningly marries its spare, gestural, black-and-white style to its capricious though thoughtful tone. The soulfulness and even loneliness she expresses is all hers."--Boston Globe

"Let's hear it for a sexual coming-of-age that, for all its bumps, isn't about victimology and regret. In "Kiss & Tell," MariNaomi outlines in bold, woodblock-style graphic nonfiction just how a girl does it in this day and age."--Elle

Reseña del editor:

From her father and mother's interracial marriage to her own "you show me yours, I'll show you mine" moments on the playground--from drug experimentation to sexual/identity questions--MariNaomi lays her inner life bare. Kiss & Tell is her funny and frank memoir in graphic form: a fresh and offbeat coming-of-age story unfolding against the colorful backdrop of San Francisco in the '80s and '90s. Through deft storytelling and charming illustration, MariNaomi carries us through first love and worst love, through heartbreak and bedroom experimentation, as she grows from misfit teen to young woman.
