All’s Fair in Love and War: The Ultimate Cartoon Book
I have found the perfect gift for the recently divorced or separated; this book will make them laugh their butts off at the foibles of love lost. Since I am among that group, this book was the perfect antidote for self-pity and regrets. There are forty-three contributors to this book of outrageous love situations. We find a physicist chalking complicated formulas while decrying to a female colleague, “my wife doesn’t understand me.” The reader will find delight and self-awareness on every page. The cover features a woman giving the boot to a male at Lover’s Leap. Lest I grow cynical, the cartoons also feature new found love as in the New Yorker’s Bob Mankoff’s cartoons of deadpan accountant types. Like Mankoff and Noth, these are cartoonists at the top of their game. I would be hard-pressed to believe that anyone could peruse this book without laughing out loud. We need humor now and this book more than fills that bill. A great gift or coffee table book.
