About the Author:

Bruce Eric Kaplan has been drawing cartoons for The New Yorker, among other publications, for over ten years. His first collection of cartoons is No One You Know, and he is also the author of the cult classic The Cat That Changed My Life. In addition, he writes for television and has worked on such notable series as Seinfeld and Six Feet Under.

From Publishers Weekly:

Kaplan’s newest collection of hilariously wry drawings plunges readers into a black-and-white world drenched with sarcasm, irony and satirical humor: a place where children wisely declare that "your priorities change once you get a new toy," and husbands plaintively tell their wives "Of course I care about how you imagined I thought you perceived I wanted you to feel." Indeed, the jargon of psychotherapy and self-help books is a favorite target of Kaplan’s, and the bluntness with which his stocky characters discuss their hopes, fears, anxieties and dislikes is one of their greatest charms. Kaplan has been a regular contributor to the New Yorker since 1991, and his book should do well—especially if it’s displayed face-out, so his fans can easily spot his signature style.
