Hand-Drying in America, by Ben Katchor
For one brief, glorious moment, I thought Ben Katchor's Hand-Drying in America was actually a nonfiction graphic novel about the development of electric hand-dryers, like an American version of this. Little known fact: I am obsessed with hand-dryers, and have long dreamt of having one installed in my bathroom, so I was ridiculously excited about reading it. Sadly (for me, at least), Katchor's book has little to do with hand-dryers, but its actual subject matter may be even better—and will definitely appeal to a wider audience*. . . .
