Abstract
This interview with cartoonist Leela Corman took place shortly after the publication of her graphic novel Unterzakhn. In the interview, she describes what it means to her to be a Jewish American cartoonist – where her book fits into that tradition, how she approached the task of drawing Jewish noses, and how she incorporated Yiddish into the book. Beyond the personal and family experiences that she drew on for Unterzakhn, she conducted detailed research about life on the Lower East Side, and the interview includes a look at that process, how it helped her, and where it failed her. Finally, she discusses her desire to tell a story about women’s lives from a female perspective, as well as the ways her characters’ lives are circumscribed by gender roles.
