About this title

Synopsis:

Funny Papers chronicles cartoon icon Derby Dugan's beginnings in the rough-and-tumble world of yellow journalism in turn-of-the-century New York, when Hearst and Pulitzer owned tabloid America. The aptly named Georgie Wreckage, a sketch artist for Pulitzer's daily World, rockets to fame as the creator of what becomes a hugely successful cartoon franchise in this, the first book in Tom De Haven's epic trilogy of twentieth-century pop-culture America.

About the Author:

Tom De Haven is a frequent contributor to Entertainment Weekly and The New York Times, and teaches at Virginia Commonwealth University. He lives in Midlothian, Virginia.
