Well, sometimes funny. Gathered together in this outrageous, rueful, and often poignant collection of cartoons are one artist's extraordinary observations on the range of emotion that the controversial symbol has elicited for more than half a century. These witty, beautifully rendered images gleefully stomp through the darkest moments in history and remind us that humor can diffuse our unspoken fears and deflate an overwrought icon.
The legendary S. Gross has been drawing for "The New Yorker" and other publications for more than forty years -- his talking cats, flying cows, and snails who have fallen in love with Scotch tape dispensers are some of the funniest and most recognizable cartoons in the world. "We Have Ways of Making You Laugh" is his most heartfelt -- and hilarious -- book yet.
