The Ralph Steadman Book of Cats

The Ralph Steadman Book of Cats Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In the spring of 1970, artist Ralph Steadman went to America in search of work and found more than he bargained for. At the Kentucky Derby he met a former

associate of the Helland#8217;s Angels, one Hunter S. Thompson. Their working relationship resulted in the now-legendary Gonzo Journalism.

and#160;
The Jokeand#8217;s Over tells of a remarkable collaboration that documented the turbulent years of the civil rights movement, the Nixon years, Watergate, and the many bizarre and great events that shaped the second half of the twentieth century. When Thompson committed suicide in 2005, it was the end of a unique friendship filled with both betrayal and underandshy;standing.

and#160;A rollicking, no-holds-barred memoir, The Jokeand#8217;s Over is the definitive inside story of the Gonzo years.

Synopsis:

In this charming, funny, and outlandish book, cult-favorite aritst Ralph Steadman turns his unflinching eyeand#8212;and his ruthless penand#8212;to cats of all varieties.

Synopsis:

Ralph Steadman, artist of distinction, caricaturist of brilliance, and longtime unsentimental cat lover, here shows us cats everywhere: cats in furniture, cat dictators, T. S. Eliot cats and Samuel Johnson cats, fashion cats and CATalogs, blot cats, splat cats, and fallen-from-skyscraper cats. There are bugs that live on cats, and uninvented cats, too.

Ranging from the fierce and furious to the whimsical and wistful, the whole world of feline life is here. In a cat book like no other, there is nothing soppy as Steadman exposes the heart and bone and sinew of these most independent and lovable pets.
