The essential retrospective of the Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist and writer whose signature brand of satire inspired generations. Everyone knows a Jules Feiffer illustration when they see one. His characters leap across the page, each line resonating with humor and psychological insight. Over Feiffer’s prolific seventy-year career, his nimble and singular imagination has given us new perspectives as well as biting satires on politics, love, marriage, and religion—all imbued with the playful anarchy of a child. Feiffer’s varied output includes children’s books (The Phantom Tollbooth and Bark, George), plays (Little Murders), movies (Carnal Knowledge and Popeye), and comic strips (most notably in his Pulitzer Prize–winning Village Voice comic strip of forty-two years). Out of Line: The Art of Jules Feiffer covers the entirety of Feiffer’s celebrated career, providing a revealing glimpse into his creative process and his role as America’s foremost Renaissance man of the arts.
