Read full description of the books:
How does one even begin to capture the appeal of Nicole Hollander’s Sylvia? There's a scribbly quality to the linework, like something scrawled on a bar napkin between cigarettes, like someone frantically trying to keep up with the speed of their own thoughts. It's never out of control to the point of messiness. And there are so many delightful details: the absolutely perfect facial expressions (see page 57, for instance, where the shift in expression is all that's needed for the punchline), the patterns on wallpaper and clothing, the hats, the shoes (and slippers) … The pages abound with absurdity, parody, sarcasm, and more than a hint of feminism--not strident and in-your-face, but confident and resolute.
Since this book came out in the mid-80’s, some of the topical humor may baffle those under thirty. Those boxy things with the antennas on top, for instance, are TVs. There was a time, believe it or not, when they weren't wide and flat. And remember when Nixon and Reagan were the worst Republican presidents in recent memory? Good times.
Much of the humor in this book is timeless, though. There will always be self-important business types, fake cheerful newscasters, overblown romance novels, inscrutable cats, ridiculous ads, and many other favorite Sylvia targets. The Whole Enchilada has aged rather well. Recommended!
