The Bunnies Knew Better

The Bunnies Knew Better is a book that follows the lives of the fictional Wolff family from the late 19th century to the mid 20th century. The story is told from the standpoint of fraternal twin Anna sharing significant parts of her life with her twin brother Oswald. The inspiration of the book was a 19th century family album with slit corners for photos and handwritten captions. The script style captions reveal pivotal moments of Anna’s life in a disjointed manner, much like the way one interjects random remarks while waxing nostalgic. The story rapidly shifts back and forth between humorous and morose anecdotes mimicking the ups and downs of life and the passing of time. The Bunnies Knew Better echoes underlying themes Eileen previously visited in The Family Name. The book’s design and illustrations are in landscape format, which further lend to the sensation of thumbing through an old album. The Bunnies Knew Better was conceived during the years that Eileen was a caretaker for both of her parents. Many of the ideas were observations of her parents’ struggles with illness and aging. It is dedicated in their memory.
