In by Will McPhail - Book Recommendation

If you have ever said something unexpectedly awkward or struggle with the right thing to say to people on various occasions, then you might appreciate In, written by a leading New Yorker cartoonist, Will McPhail.

In by Will McPhail is a semi-autobiographical work that looks at the subject of human interaction in relation to emotions. This is a book that examines the social rituals of communication, how some people take to it like ducks take to water, and how some of us struggle to connect with people emotionally.

The honesty on the pages is refreshing and makes it easy for the reader to identify with the characters in the book. The art is unique - the pencil work is sublime and compliments the subject of the book.

The eyes on the characters look a bit creepy at times. That particular aesthetic limits the range of expression portrayed by the characters.

Many thanks to Houghton Mifflin Harcourt for review copy.
