Review: Missed Connections: Love, Lost and Found by Sophie Blackall

What a clever, sweet, funny quirky book!  The author uses real “Missed Connections” posts fro Craigslist to inspire illustrations  that show her talent and style.

Be sure to read the author’s introduction before you fly through the short texts and pore of the detailed drawings.  I had lots of favorites, including this gem

“You came to my tea shop.  You had the best  eyelashes and were a handsome devil. Wish I would have asked you out. Ha!”

I’m not sure how to categorize this.  Graphic, but not a novel.  Non fiction, but pretty unreal.
