"J&K is a delightful mix of cute moments and 'tragically sensitive' bummers. Packaged as one of the most beautiful books I've ever seen, Pham unites weird with wonderful. So weird, that by the end, you'll think a pimple pus character named Bacne is adorable." — Aminder Dhaliwal, Woman World

Press Highlights:

"Pham's precise work is a tremendous pleasure to behold." — The Guardian

"Pham crafts a funny and surprisingly affecting story of two slacker friends and their marginal lifestyles. This jumble of gags and lovable and loving outsiders succeeds through sheer, unrelenting weirdness." — Publishers Weekly
