My Home Birth: A Graphic Graphic Memoir by Christen Clifford & David Heatley

May 8th, 2009 by Larry Smith

We’re thrilled to direct Next-Door Neighbor lovers to another SMITH story told in comic form, this one about another near-universal topic: birth. Christen Clifford, whose words have appeared on SMITH before, as well as on stage and in many other publications, met cartoonist David Heatley on the playground, as creative New York parents are wont to do. Now Heatley, author of the graphic novel, My Brain is Hanging Upside Down, brings to vivid life Clifford’s story of her homebirth. SMITH is pleased to present My Home Birth by Christen Clifford & David Heatley.

    This is excellent work. CD, it was a great idea to get David to compose this. Vera is beautiful!
    David, I’m still waiting for my autographed print of the Queens comic. I want to buy it from you and frame it for our place.
    Keep up the creative work!

    “Everyone loves to beat up on a landlord”. My landlord is very nice so I don’t. But the story is very interesting.
