Backing Into Forward


Nancy Rommelmann writes a thoughtful review of a new illustrated memoir by cartoonist, playwright and author Jules Feiffer, Backing Into Forward. She begins with a statement describing the artist as “happy bomb thrower,” and concludes that as times change and print declines, “television’s screaming heads” cannot replace the kind of witty and politically engaged stuff we’ve seen in editorial cartoons for decades. At 80 years old, Feiffer must have quite a trove of material to choose from. Read the full review here.
