If "The Far Side" had a gay little brother with borderline personality disorder, it might look something like this book. Sometimes absurdly funny, sometimes just absurd, Room for Milk by Cole Escola will take you on an acid trip through children's books that don't exist and other weird illustrated fever dreams.


"The funny guy." —New York Times

"Jeffery Self and Cole Escola are the funniest camp duo since Kiki and Herb." —T Magazine (New York Times Magazine)

"Charming, weird and LOL." —Washington Post

"Cole Escola is a master of the dramatic 'ape'; the on-the-nose and seamless conjuring of characters and moments that resonate deeply and always hilariously, summoned with sly virtuosity." —PAPER magazine

"Cole Escola is a bonafide genius." —Lena Dunham

He was also cocreator, writer, and star of the lo-fi cult-hit TV show Jeffery & Cole Casserole on Logo. Other TV appearances include Nurse Jackie, Law & Order, Smash, and Watch What Happens. Escola originated the role of Bridget Everett's fetus in "Rock Bottom" for The Public Theater in a performance Variety referred to as "heroic."
