Praise for Tina’s Mouth

“Instead of just charting the discoveries of a smart kid’s adolescence, Tina’s Mouth can make you feel them.  This is familiar material, yes, but it’s familiar in the way of philosophy and pop songs can be: At their best, the breathless feelings, dramatized by Kashyap and Araki might match up to a corresponding one in you – and then set it off like fireworks.”
- SF Weekly

“Slangy and funny and honest, like a mix of John Hughes, J.D. Salinger and Marjane Satrapi.”
- The A.V. Club/Onion

#5 on Entertainment Weekly’s Must List for the week of December 26, 2012!!

Featured in Nylon Magazine’s Book Club January, 2012

“A complete package that gives both Sartre and Tina their due.”
-Booklist, STARRED review

“A completely charming voice…will delight fans of Sartre and Salinger alike.”
- Aimee Bender, author of The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake

“Kashyap perfectly captures the universal angst of high school and puts her own unique, wickedly smart spin on it.”
Janelle Brown, author of All We Ever Wanted Was Everything

“How to be? It’s a question that has consumed philosophers for centuries, from Seneca to Montaigne to Buddhist scholars, and it’s a quandary taken up with youthful passion and humor in Keshni Kashyap’s delightful new graphic novel, “Tina’s Mouth: An Existential Comic Diary”
- SF Chronicle

“A charming, hip, illustrated coming-of-age tale.”
- Kirkus
