Join us at the Bacon Free Library as we discuss Hot Dog Taste Test by Lisa Hanawalt
Copies will be available at the library, or you can request one HERE.
Hot Dog Taste Test collects Hanawalt’s devastatingly funny comics, gorgeous art, and screwball lists as she tucks into the pomposities of the foodie subculture. Hanawalt dismantles the notion of breakfast; says goodbye to New York through a street food smorgasbord; shadows chef Wylie Dufresne, samples all-you-can-eat buffets in Vegas; and crafts an eerie comic about being a horse lover yet an avid carnivore.
Hot Dog Taste Test explodes with color, hilarity, charm, and, occasionally, reproductive organs. Lush full-spread paintings of birds getting their silly feet all over a kitchen, a fully imagined hot dog show (think Best in Show but with hot dogs), and a holiday feast gone awry are the creamy icing on this imaginative rainbow-colored cake. But Hanawalt’s wit and heart extend far beyond gags – her insightful musings on popular culture, relationships, and the animal in all of us are as keen and funny as her watercolors are exquisite.
