About this Item

Oblong 12mo. Black cloth, pictorial dust jacket. xiii, (ca. 200pp). Extensive full-page illustrations. Near fine/very good. Quite mild bit of jacket edgewear. A superb first edition of this well-known editorial cartoon collection (subtitled "From Little Italy to the Pulitzer Prize" on the jacket front panel) by the Pulitzer Prize-winning (1969) syndicated political cartoonist (1916-80) who delighted "Chicago Daily News" readers for many years before switching to the "Chicago Tribune" in 1978. Handsomely inscribed and signed by the cartoonist in the year of publication on the title page in blue ballpoint: "To Doris and Felix Popper / Who's Mom is a real doll! / -- My warmest good wishes to you both / -- John Fischetti -- " Felix Popper (1908-2000) was a conductor with the New York City Opera, his wife Doris (born 1924) an opera singer with that same company. An all-around memorable copy. Bookseller Inventory # 29576

About this title

Synopsis:

Zinga Zinga Za! is a book about growing up with a large, loving Italian family in Brooklyn 50 years ago. It's about hopping freights during the Depression, and about digging ditches and sketching cartoons for the Army in World War II. It is anecdotes about Mike Royko, Jimmy Breslin and Lydon Johnson. Among others. It's 121 pages of the kind of political cartoons that won John Fischetti a Pulitzer Prize. It's about hippies, de Gaulle, LBJ, inflation, women's lib and Watergate. Zinga Zinga Za! is even more than all that!
