Stories from the Kitchen

You must be aware of Everyman’s Pocket Classics from Alfred A. Knopf. I recently bought their ‘Stories from the kitchen’ book and loved the collection they featured. Based on a few lines from one of the stories by Lara Vapnyar, I created a comic strip illustration. The story is called ‘A Bunch of Broccoli on the Third Shelf’.
