HOW ABOUT NEVER – IS NEVER GOOD FOR YOU? My Life In Cartoons

neverBOB MANKOFF

When I first ordered this book I thought it would be mostly cartoons instead it is a musing on the nature of humour mixed with a mass of cartoons. It is also a memoir of Mankoff’s development of cartooning skills and style.  Mankoff submitted hundreds of cartoons to The New Yorker before selling one. He was a freelancer for the magazine for 20 years before stepping into the cartoon editor’s shoes. Like most of the New Yorker cartoons the humour is dry but there are many that are laugh out loud funny. His motto is  “Anything worth saying is worth saying funny.” A great motto.never2
