Today Aron Nels Steinke is here with the fourth installment of his week drawing the Cartoonist's Diary feature.
—Phoebe Gloeckner. One of the great side benefits of the release of the film adaptation of Diary of a Teenaged Girl is the slew of great interviews with Gloeckner.

Laura Miller writes about the book and movie over at Slate.
