1. Alison Bechdel read Ounce Dice Trice!

    What were your favorite books as a child 

    We had two books of John Ciardi poems that were illustrated by Edward Gorey. I loved those, not so much for the poetry as for the curious tension between the poetry and the pictures. I also loved Ounce Dice Trice for the same reason — the weird fusion of Alastair Reid’s words and Ben Shahn’s drawings.

    —Alison Bechdel, whose graphic memoir Are You My Mother? was recently published, talks to The New York Times Book Review about her favorite books as a child.

  2. Hey—we know that cat! He’s from Alastair Reid and Ben Shahn’s Ounce Dice Trice. Amazing how images get around (and lose their captions in the process).
