by Jeffrey Brown
224 pages; softcover, B&W, digest.
Originally printed as a limited edition with hand drawn covers, Top Shelf presents the
final chapter of Jeffrey Brown's so-called "Girlfriend Trilogy." AEIOU (or) Any Easy
Intimacy continues to explore the subtleties of relationships explored in Clumsy and
Unlikely, concentrating this time on the differences between knowing and loving
someone, invoking the reader's relationship with the book as a parallel to being involved
with someone. The story is told with Brown's trademark expressive drawings and
juxtaposition of humor and heartache.
