“Less than 24 hours after she won the 2013 Ignatz Award for “Best Graphic Novel” (defeating a particularly strong group of all female nominees, including Carol Tyler and Rutu Modan), I found myself on a train back to NYC with Ulli Lust. Her graphic novel, Today Is The Last Day of the Rest of Your Life, had just debuted in English a few months earlier and the two of us had only met a day ago while sitting together at the Fantagraphics booth at SPX. For both of us it had been an incredible weekend (for her, it was her first time in the United States, and for me, The Love & Rockets Companion also debuted at that show), and we were both simultaneously elated and exhausted. Rushing through the concourse at DC Metro, we barely caught our train, yet once we settled in, we had four hours together to chat. Normally I tend to over-prepare for interviews, but this time I just turned on the recorder and we started talking. The resulting conversation was more about getting to know Ulli, the person, than an exploration of her amazing graphic novel, which I hadn’t even read yet, but in hindsight, our meandering dialogue will certainly deepen the appreciation for her unforgettable memoir.”
