My friend Stephen Betts married a cartoonist - Ellen Lindner - and her new book Undertow is out.
You can buy a copy at Lulu.com for less than $12. Ellen describes it as:
Undertow by Ellen Lindner gives us a close-up view through the back door of Brooklyn in the sixties—with all the delinquency, drugs, and trips to Coney Island that implies. Beautifully drawn in sinuous, sharp style, Lindner's characters, and their fight to do more than survive, are unforgettable.
Although she's too young to remember Brooklyn in the 1960s. Actually, so am I. I just ordered mine to see what I missed.
