This volume gathers the complete I Was 7 in '75 comics series, Forney's charming, knowing look back at growing up in a liberal, suburban hipster family in the decade of decadence. Storylines include getting caught reading Judy Blume's Forever, family Sundays at the local Unitarian Society, nude tennis, arm-wrestling the local second-grade bully, getting busted for pot, trying to avoid being stuck with the nickname "Horny Forney," and the author's perfect moment: when Lindsay Wagner sang "Feelings" on The Bionic Woman. The perfect boomer gift, and a great antidote to the current wave of "boomers are scum" books!

"One of the best collections of comics ever created." – Indy magazine

"Forney's witty documentation of the Me Decade... has propelled her to the fore of the underground comics scene. Simply and lovingly rendered, [Monkey Food] is less a catalog of retro taste than a tribute to Forney's affectionately remembered youth." – Elle

"Forney is a major new cartooning talent." – Feminist Bookstore News
