EASY DOES IT
Proto-punks, post-hippies, deadheads, druggies, and hungry folks of every stripe populate Mimi Pond’s new graphic novel memoir, Over Easy, with the action set around a bohemian diner in late-’70s Oakland. It’s an immersive experience: As the counterculture shifts from hippie to punk in an eyeblink, art-school dropouts and society’s misfits find a temporary home full of free love and plentiful drugs among the deep fryers and hot plates. Tonight at McNally Jackson, Pond — a former Voice contributor and writer of The Simpsons’ pilot episode — reads from this coming-of-age story, and delves into it in conversation with fellow humorist Lisa Birnbach (The Official Preppy Handbook).
