In 2010, Lucy and her long-term boyfriend John broke up. Three long, lonely years later, John returned to New York, walked into Lucy's apartment, and proposed. This is not that story. It is the story of what came after: The Wedding.

readers who have planned their own wedding or are in the process of planning one are the target audience for this book and it was just a random moment that i found this in a box of books from moving and i pulled it out to start reading. i myself is currently in the middle of planning a spring 2024 wedding! perfect timing! it's primarily a mini memoir of this time in Lucy Knisley's life. but it’s not only that. it's a memoir that has surprisingly introspective and insightful sections. there’s more than meets the eye in Something New and i think it relates to a wider audience as it's dense with deeper moments. i really enjoyed for the statements that don’t naturally lend themselves to illustration, Kinsley thinks outside the box and this is where she shines as a cartoonist–when she has to tap into that inventive side. this graphic novel is a love letter to this momentous time in her life, and her joy comes through loud and clear ( )

Lucy Knisley is my spirit animal. I will read anything and everything that she publishes. And when in the midst of the hellish ordeal that most people refer to as wedding planning, it was the most welcome breath of fresh air. I was that weird kind of bride that instead of firing her mom, said "Here Mom, take it - you plan it and I'll do whatever you want." and for Lucy's somewhat similar mentality, I was extremely thankful to find someone I could relate to in that stressful time.

A week before my wedding, my grandfather passed away and it was Lucy's writings, both Something New and Displacement, that helped me realize that he would want me to be happy and to celebrate instead of being sad. It was Lucy's words that reminded me that a wedding is a special occasion, not just because you're getting married, but because it is an amazing chance to get to spend time with the people you truly care the most about and who care the most about you.

graphic memoir / comic artist Lucy Knisley (thoughtful, creative, not an "expert" on anything, incidentally bisexual) plans her wedding and documents her ideas and experiences.

At 300 pages, this is a longer, somewhat text-heavy volume that can't be quickly read through in one sitting, but I am a fan of Knisley's writing and artwork and can also appreciate her skill in eye-catching and readable layouts. She also provides some alternative traditions that are less patriarchy-centric, in case you are planning your own ceremony but maybe don't particularly love sexism. ( )

I am totally into the story of Lucy Knisley's life -- I think it's her emphasis on excellent food that I find deeply appealing. Also her art. And her honesty. And kindness. It's good stuff. ( )

contains 300 times your RDA of tedious middle class hand-wringing ( )

For all the other makeshift, and not so makeshift, brides and grooms out there. It doesn't matter if your wedding is impending or happened fify years ago or may someday happen in the future . . . Whether it's big or small or borrowed or blue . . . we're all joined in this matrimonial bond of occasional utter cluelessness.
And for Johnny who was game to marry into the dubious position of husband-to/fodder-for and autobiographical cartoonist spouse, and whose sweet handsome face I so love to draw.
And for my mom, who makes stuff happen. MOB: Thank you. I'm sorry, I love you.
Love, The Makeshift Bride

The implication that comes with writing a book is that you must be some sort of expert on your topic, which is hilarious when you consider my work.
