"I love [Davis?s] free-form drawing . . . She just has a funny, truthful voice." ?Audrey NiffeneggerVanessa Davis?s autobiography, more observational than confessional, delighted readers ten years ago when she first began telling stories about her life in New York as a young single Jewish woman. Spaniel Rage is filled with frank and immediate pencil-drawn accounts of dating woes, misunderstandings between her and her mother, and conversations with friends.

Her keen observation of careless words spoken casually is refreshingly honest, yet never condemning. Unabashedly, Davis offers up gently self-deprecating anecdotes about her anxieties and wry truths about the contradictions of life in the big city. These comics are sexy, funny, lonely, beautiful, spare, and very smart?the finest work from a natural storyteller.
Vanessa Davis was born in Florida and lives in Los Angeles. She is a cartoonist and illustrator who has contributed to Vice, The New York Times, Lucky Peach, and Tablet .
