Description

"Insightful and venomously cynical political cartoons . . . Rall straddles stereotypes, avoids party lines like live wires. . . . A true freethinker." --Las Vegas "Mercury" There simply isn't a more polarizing, more controversial, or more widely read political and social cartoonist than Ted Rall. Matt Groening: "Ted Rall makes me laugh out loud." Rush Limbaugh: "What is sad is that such an ignoramus ends up as a prominent cartoonist in major newspapers." Janet Clayton, "L.A. Times" editorial page editor: "He's wonderfully incisive. He has a way of looking at the world that is rarely articulated in editorial cartoons." Bernard Goldberg, author of "100 People Who Are Screwing Up America" "There is loathsome and there is beneath loathsome. And then there's Ted Rall." Love him or hate him, Rall has a unique drawing style and makes caustic social commentary that sets him apart from the pack. "America Gone Wild" features Rall's most controversial cartoons assembled for the first time in a single collection. Rall views his strips as a vehicle for driving social change. He applies his outrageous sense of humor to volatile topics from 9/11 and the Iraq war to social issues such as unemployment, the environment, and religion. This collection comprises his edgiest material and features lengthy behind-the-scenes commentary from Rall."show more
