Friend-os, I had a lovely time in New Mexico, and next week I’ll be in the Bay Area and then Seattle for a few more readings – one of which will be with Katie Coyle, whose own second outstanding novel Vivian Apple Needs a Miracle just came out in the US. Katie is a thoughtful, hilarious, darkly insightful writer, so you should probably read her books, unless you don’t like things like that. (Who are you?)

The fact that I’m reading with Katie on the 15th makes it doubly appropriate that this comic is at least 70% a present for Katie. (The rest is just…why wouldn’t I draw a love ode to my dog?)

In other news, I am tired.
