Dogs and The New Yorker, a great combination
on November 14, 2012
I am a sucker for most things that deal with dogs, and then add the New Yorker, makes for a witty, sly, funny combination. Everything in this book is sourced from the monumental material printed over the years from the New Yorker, a treasure trove of all things smart, funny, socially relevant. Some of the best cartoons on social commentary ever printed come from the New Yorker, and the best cartoons about dogs and our relationship with them. (My favourite cartoon is by Charles Addams, page 247, few are better than he.) It also contains wonderful essays by John Cheever, Ronald Dahl, Ogden Nash, Anne Sexton and many others. A great addition for any book lover, or gift for a dog lover, and if you are both, even better!
