9780060128302: Rube Goldberg: His Life and Work

This book is an intimate biography of one of America's greatest humorists. Best known for his fabulous cartoons, which satirized the enveloping technology of modern times, Rube Goldberg also won fame as a vaudeville actor, an author, a star of radio and TV, an editorialist, and a sculptor. For sixty-six years Rube cast a shrewd eye on people, events and social movements. While he always aimed for a laugh, his wit was often prophetic. This is the first book to explore Rube's genius. It includes 190 of his greatest cartoons and numerous selections from his lively writings, all interwoven with a lucid narrative by Peter C. Mario. While covering Rube's long and often humorous life, Marzio adds his own wit and scholarship to create a vivid portrait of one of our most original and productive comics.
