No One You Know: A Collection of Cartoons

Posted on

Neil Simon, Bruce Eric Kaplan, ...

Providing his trademark salty take on married couples, workplace hierarchies, and the battle of the sexes, New Yorker cartoonist Kaplan’s collection is not for the person who takes life too seriously. Kaplan, also a former Seinfeld scribe (Jerry offers jacket kudos), takes deliciously direct hits at psychiatry (the caption beneath a sketch of two chickens talking reads: ”After fifteen years of therapy, I still don’t know why I crossed the road”), dating games (man to woman: ”I had a wonderful time. Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to go home and second-guess my feelings for you”), and the entertainment industry (little girl to little boy: ”Why did you speak to Dad? He can’t green-light anything”) that are so dead-on, you’ll be left slightly disturbed but overwhelmingly tickled.
