Almost Completely Baxter: New and Selected Blurtings
|Publisher:||The New York Review of Books|
Over four decades and a multitude of books, “Colonel” Glen Baxter has built a world and a language all his own—slightly familiar, decidedly abnormal, irresistibly funny. Baxter’s drawings are a delicious stew of pulp adventure novels, highbrow hijinks, and outright absurdity: lonesome cowboys confront the latest in modern art, brave men tremble before moussaka, schoolgirls hoard hashish, and the world’s fruits are in constant peril. This new selection of Baxter’s work brings together highlights from the full sweep of his long career.
