I love the New Yorker for many reasons, but most especially the cartoons. Never miss a chance to buy a compilation. Saw this and bought it for a couple/friends who were coming up on their anniversary. They loved it. So I bought 5 more. And then another 5. And I have 2 sitting on my shelf for the future. It's not often you really do find the perfect gift.

Cluttered insipid drawing, weak punchlines and a general lack of distinctive character. I DO draw the line (pun unintended) at plagiarism. There is a direct steal of an old Rowland Wilson cartoon of a woman telling her husband "Please hurry, dear, the soup's getting dirty" - they are going to eat on their little New York terrace. It is a much loved and anthologized cartoon. Donnelly and/or Maslin do the same cartoon less effectively with a hostess telling guests to hurry the food is getting dirty at an outside New York affair. It is a busy, uninteresting cartoon and not as funny as the quintessential New York couple with their precious little terrace in the original.

The take on marriage gets nasty, peevish and mean-spirited very quickly and 'unfunny cruel'. I am not a prude but if you cross a certain line on sexuality you had better be TRUE and FUNNY which they are not. The cartoons on married sex are enervated and bland and vaguely offensive. The authors purport to love James Thurber but I can think of few cartoonists who remind me less of Thurber's unique intensity.

Got this book for our wedding anniversary and love it! Multiple purchases for friends and families since then. It gives you the laughs that you need in reflecting marriage. Some are so true to reality that you can relate directly. Superb combo of excellent wit and great cartoon selection. Perfect wedding and anniversary gift! Or just a keepsake to remind ourself to smile when the going get rough.
