Know Someone Who Loves New Yorker Cartoons? Loves to Drink?
Give ''Olive or Twist?''
Book of Drinking Cartoons
New Yorker cartoonist Jack Ziegler is back with a new book -- a sparkling volume of 122 cartoons on drinks and drinking.
Olive or Twist? serves up a cocktail of laughter, taking on top-shelf treats ("Could Chianti, Burgundy, and Rioja all come from the feet of the same Frenchman?") and low-grade liquor (Bar beer options: "Import, Domestic, Micro, or Crap?"). Ziegler is just as at home in the ritziest bar ("Meanwhile at the Cafe de la Mort: Ernest Hemingway is ridiculing Oscar Wilde's wine spritzer while Truman Capote takes notes") as he is in the dingiest dive ("Slumlord's Top o' the Tenement Bar & Grill").
This volume is the ideal pick-me-up, guaranteed not only to banish booze blues but, like the title character, to leave the reader begging for more. 8 1/4" x 8 3/4". Hardcover. 128 pages.
