These clever cartoons about books and literature made me laugh out loud over and over. ( )

I enjoyed this collection slightly more than You’re All Just Jealous of My Jetpack, possibly because I got more of the jokes. In addition to Gauld’s usual fare of riffing on literature, there are more general-knowledge cartoons, including my favourites: the one about the M.C. Escher gallery, and the one about the hills. Gauld’s cartoons will appeal to book lovers and those who like quirky, low-key humour. ( )

A best-of collection of literary humour cartoons from the critically-acclaimed Guardian cartoonist In his inimitable style, British cartoonist Tom Gauld has opened comics to a crossover audience and challenged perceptions of what the medium can be. Noted as a "book-lover's cartoonist," Gauld's weekly strips in The Guardian , Britain's most well-regarded newspaper, stitch together the worlds of literary criticism and pop culture to create brilliantly executed, concise comics. Simultaneously silly and serious, Gauld adds an undeniable lightness to traditionally highbrow themes. From sarcastic panels about the health hazards of being a best-selling writer to a list of magical items for fantasy writers (such as the Amulet of Attraction, which summons mainstream acceptance, Hollywood money, and fresh coffee), Gauld's cartoons are timely and droll-his trademark British humour, impeccable timing, and distinctive visual style sets him apart from the rest. Lauded both for his frequent contributions to New Scientist , The Guardian and The New York Times , and his Eisner-nominated graphic novels, Tom Gauld is one of the most celebrated cartoonists working today. In Baking with Kafka , he proves this with one witty, sly, ridiculous comic after another.… (more)
