Summary
  • "This is a continuation of Mimi Pond's book Over Easy, a memoir of her time working amongst the hippies and punks of the wisecracking, fast-talking, drug-taking Imperial Café. Pond's story is equal parts time capsule of late 1970s life in California - with its deadheads, punks, disco rollers, casual sex and drug use - and bildungsroman of a young woman from naïve, sexually inexperienced art-school dropout to self-aware, self-confident artist. Mimi Pond's chatty, slyly observant anecdotes create a compelling portrait of a distinct moment in time."--
  • In late 1970s Oakland, California, Madge is a diner waitress whose art career begins to take off as those around her succumb to addiction and alcoholism. Sequel to the author's 2014 fictionalized graphic memoir, Over Easy
