More Description

""The Voyeurs" is the work of a mature writer, if not one of the most sincere voices of her literary generation. It's a fun, honest read that spans continents, relationships and life decisions. I loved it."--Chris Ware, "Acme Novelty Library"

"As she watches other people living life, and watches herself watching them, Bell's pen becomes a kind of laser, first illuminating the surface distractions of the world, then scorching them away to reveal a deeper reality that is almost too painful and too beautiful to bear."-- Alison Bechdel, "Fun Home"

"A master of the exquisite detail, Bell provides a welcome peephole into our lives."--Francoise Mouly, "The New Yorker"

"I don't think I could tolerate her if she wasn't so talented."--Michel Gondry, "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind"
