Very cute and clever stories with childlike wonder and political satire woven into one. The titular tale of Passionella in particular is a very tender refiguring of the classic story.

I bought this book because I'm a Feiffer fan.

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.
