MISS HENNIPIN is a really, really excellent book by Andy Douglas Day. It was just published by Scott Longo over at Sonatina Comics earlier this month.. It’s a book that’s very much alive. There’s so much more to say about it and I wish I could articulate what makes the whole thing so significant but that seems like the best and truest thing I can manage right now without rambling. It’s very alive.
I interviewed Andy about some of this over Gchat back in February.

This interview between Sarah & Andy is probably the best writing surrounding Miss Hennipin right now, and more ppl should read it, if compelled. <3
Every thinking man is prone, particularly as he grows older, to feel waves large or small of a kind of cosmic regret for what he let go past him. He wonders helplessly — knowing how futile it would be to feel any active passion — how he could have behaved as he did or let something or other happen without acknowledging it.
The only salve to this occasional wound — basically open until death, no matter how small and hidden — is to admit that there is potential strength in it: not only in recognizing it as such but in accepting the long far ripples of understanding and love that most probably spread out from its beginning.
A good time for me to contemplate such personal solutions, or whatever they may be, is when day slides into night. In almost all weather I can sit for a few minutes or an hour or so on my veranda, looking west-southwest and letting a visceral realization flow quietly through me of what other people have given me that I can only now understand.”

Hehe. Good buddy Argel posted a nice response to Hennipin and took her for a pleasant pedicab cruise down the Embarcadero. Sounds ideal to me. ;)
