About this Item

Text/BRAND NEW w/a whisper of margin discoloration. Illustrated boards/NF. DJ/Poor; tattered, torn, & brittle --- consider without. This first reprint edition was produced by arrangement with the Dial Press. Many of the cartoons were originally published in the New Yorker. Cartoonist, illustrator and writer Syd Hoff (1912 -), known to many through the I Can Read and Danny and the Dinasaur series, was chronicler of New York tenement life in the days before the flight to the suburbs (and to airconditioning - with Hoff the windows are always open) put an end to a semi-public way of life. He celebrates the one- and two-bedroom flats, the affections of overweight office workers (male), and their homemaker wives and their nubile daughters, trips to the butcher, Jones Beach, and the Catskills: the jokes are almost always gentle: there's no menace (as in Addams), no snobbery (as in Arno). "Look, Mamma!" says the girl rushing into her parents' bedroom, and showing off an engagement ring, "I'm not a liability any more." 128 pages. Bookseller Inventory # 201185
