9780954930998: Rumble Strip: If You Want to Get Away with Murder, Buy a Car

Over 1.2 million people are killed on the road each year. By 2020, road traffic accidents could outstrip stroke and HIV as one of the main causes of preventable deaths. Woodrow Phoenix’s dry, sometimes painfully mordant wit, backed up by accident statistics, personal observations, and case histories, offers a trenchant analysis of the problems of road users everywhere and the risks we all take every day. Rumble Strip surprises, challenges, asks us questions that badly need answers, and makes us think about things we may prefer to ignore. But sometimes we all need a wake-up call: Woodrow Phoenix personalizes the experience of the commuter, the driver, the pedestrian, the accident victim—because any one of them could be you.

About the Author:

Woodrow Phoenix is a British comics artist and writer who also works in the fields of editorial illustration, graphic design, font design, and children's books. His work is graphic and playful but is unusual for its high degree of formal experimentation. His graphic story "End of the Line" first appeared to much praise in The Brighton Book, a mixed media anthology in association with The Brighton Festival. He is co-editor of Nelson, a collective graphic novel with 54 creators, published by Blank Slate.

Review:

"Every so often a book like this comes along, one which allows fresh vision, even a change of mindset. Brilliant...a crucial revelation." - ALI SMITH"
