How's the Squid?: A Book of Food Cartoons Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With deadpan humor that combines sneaky social satire with clever wordplay, New Yorker cartoonist Jack Ziegler has inspired paroxysms of laughter for the last three decades. And now this "genius with a touch of madness" serves up his most delicious and satisfying comic fare: 125 tasty morsels about food culture and consumption.

The cartoons in this hilarious book-some of them never published before-include a conversation about the market at a local tavern ("I took one look at the price of coffee futures this morning and decided to reinvest in the stability of beer"), a fish psychiatrist offering sage counsel to a fish patient ("Has it ever occurred to you just to say, 'Hey, I quit. I don't want to be part of the food chain anymore'?"), and a culinary face-off between René Magritte and Betty Crocker. These cartoons, the author promises, will make readers so sick with laughter that they won't be able to eat for a week.

Synopsis:

- This is the latest in the Abrams' series of books by New Yorker cartoonists that are focused on a specific theme.
- Anyone can relate to these hilarious cartoons on food culture and consumption.
- This book will appeal to the vast audience of New Yorker cartoonist Leo Cullum's first book, Scotch and Toilet Water? A Book of Dog Cartoons, which was extremely popular. Now in its second printing, it has sold over 17,000 copies.
- The New Yorker magazine will support the book with publicity.
- There are no other cartoon collections out there on this vastly popular topic--restaurants, chefs, cookery, and general food books are popular categories in the bookstores.
