In both interviews and art, he not only relates the external facts of his life but also turns his id inside-out. The three passions of his life, he's said, are sex, music, and his art, and all three of them get intertwined in both his personal life and his work.My Troubles with Women is a collection that especially speaks to the first passion.… (more)

Robert Crumb's renderings of traditionally built women are always a joy to behold, and there are lots of them here, tightly packed into a collection of stories about Crumb's personal sexual journey. The artwork is from his classic mature period, a richly cross-hatched 3-D realism that bounces off the pages with not a line out of place. As is so often the case with Crumb, the predominant mood is one of guilt ridden introspection, but I find his honesty compelling, and his fantasies even more so. Male readers of similar inclinations will find much to identify with here, others may gain some useful insight into their troubles with . . men! ( )
