Reading Envy 040: Proustian Ratatouille

Jenny stayed closer to home for this episode, to talk comics with local teen services librarian and Secret Stacks podcaster, Thomas Maluck. The podcast starts and ends with comics but if that isn't your speed, there are other books discussed in the middle.  Jenny isn't really an expert in comics either, and soon learned she may never be as much of an expert as Thomas! Talk about envy - this is an entire genre practically unexplored.
