Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

"Nobody does what Mr. Fish does, and even if they did, they wouldn’t do it as well as Mr. Fish does. Go Fish is that rarest of creatures: an essential collection of political cartoons."
--David Reese, author of Get Your War On

"Mr. Fish is one of the few brilliant souls who describes and illustrates the earth’s insanity and all of the hypocrisy and still somehow doesn’t detract from my need to masturbate constantly."
--Richard Lewis, Comedian/Actor

"Mr Fish’s penis obsession has evolved into unique visual metaphorical truths that probe the very core of politics, culture, religion—pick a target, any target—yes, he has indeed learned to think outside the cocks."
--Paul Krassner, author of Confessions of a Raving, Unconfined Nut: Misadventures in the Counter-culture

"Behold the cartoons in Go Fish: there is no more savage yet brilliant wit then that possessed by Mr. Fish, who will never compromise on his deep artistic insight or the outrageous honesty of his social commentary. In a sellout culture he is that rare witness for unfettered truth."
--Robert Scheer, author of The Great American Stickup

Be afraid. Be very afraid.

Mr Fish (D Booth) has no sugar for your medicine. With a precision of wit Fish distills the hypocrisy's of our time into a single punch to the gut. A passion for truth guides a hand that presents images that will force you to stop and gawk, like a brutal 23 car pile-up that you can't stand to look at but still can't turn away.

One day this man will win a pulitzer. Which he will then piss on and return.

The cover of this book, Go Fish, is just wonderfully ironic. There is a depiction of a mild-mannered Buddy Holly knock off in his big black rimmed glasses, his eyes closed, stepping out into a world that is... Well, okay, maybe a little polluted. Oh, yes, and in the distance might those be bombs? Oh well, if one doesn't look, then they just aren't nice. So it's going to be a nice day for a walk somewhere. And certainly the title lures one in because anyone like me who recalls playing "Fish" when we would tell others, depending upon our cards, to "go fish," looks forward to the possibilities of a nice book with a nice message. Except, of course, this is a book written by a man who as a seven-year-old boy became enraged by the "I want to buy the world a Coke" ad. Remember it?

I just had the pleasure of both reading this book and listening to the author/artist talk about the book and his political views at the Miami Book Fair. Mr. Fish,who is actually Dwayne Booth, is a tall, handsome man who wears--ah, yes--large black-framed glasses. He is one of those guys who is like the cover of this book, ironic. The calm, coolness would suggest that this is not a man who would be as enraged as he is about the state of affairs in this world, very graphically depicted in his art work which has earned international recognition.

We all know the five stages of grief: denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance. This book is built about them except in reverse. Ah, yes, more irony. His prose is absolutely brilliant, matching his graphics. There are some of the most delicious long sentences, many written from the point of view of Dwayne Booth as a child growing up in New Jersey.

I've been following Mr. Fish for a long while. His chat with Mort Sahl was refreshing, and I love his approach to Faith in God.

Having long suffered from my devotion to architecture and structural engineering vs the official version of the collapse of the Twin Towers, Wayne is one of few who can provide relief, far better than my amygdala can rationalize the horrors of reality.

I am so glad I bought this book at Amazon. The price was right. It was a steal.
