Shat in a Diaper Pail! Charmed by the title, Pressed Wafer knew the book was for us even before we opened it. We quickly learned that Dean’s prose and drawings make autobiography of a high order, funny and heart-tearing.
The painter and subscriber Lucas Reiner sent this email when he finished Dean’s book, “Mary Jane Dean has a really clear and fresh voice. Her tone is so intimate I felt she was right next to me while I read her book.” Our sentiments exactly.
We All Shat in a Diaper Pail bears a one sentence blurb by the artist and writer’s mother, Sarah Dean, “She was always a pretty good kid.” We didn’t press her to say more.
One look at these pages and you’ll know whether or not you agree with us about this exceptional book.
