The book basically illustrates the more recent Feiffer work, which is a George Bernard Shaw type of satirical work, and throws in some older cartoons as well.
I did not like the play writing or the illustrated fable. I much prefer the old Feiffer stuff in the book, and his cartoon features like Boom.
Even though I enjoy the cartoons much more than the play writing, I will admit that there is some excellent and funny satire writing, for example, " Superman ". All about vulnerable male egos and action heroes. The fable also has great comments on the human condition.
It really is an essential book for philosophy or Drama/art students, because no one can handle satire in this unique and funny way.
I am not sure that old Feiffer cartoon fans will be getting their money's worth though.
