Everyone's a Critic: The Ultimate Cartoon Book

Despite the numerous essays, reviews and works of short fiction the New Yorker has published since 1925, special attention has always been paid to the cartoon work that accompanies each issue. In this spirit, editor (and frequent New Yorker cartoon contributor) Bob Eckstein here curates work from 36 masters of the craft--half of which have never been published--that plays on a timeless theme and serves as the collection's title. Everyone's a Critic is an intelligent, hilarious discourse on modern-day criticism, featuring everything from judgmental cavemen to altruistic burglars to a police sketch artist with more lofty ambitions. With work from acclaimed contributors like Roz Chast, Bob Mankoff and Liza Donnelly, Eckstein summarizes the book in his introduction when he declares, "I'm hoping this book can be a life-changing experience for those who up until now have been unable to roll with the punches or simply enjoy a chef's salad." --Zack Ruskin, freelance reviewer
