Interview with Bob Mankoff (Audio!)

There’s an interesting NPR interview with self-described “licensed humorist” Bob Mankoff in which he discusses the gigantic new The Complete Cartoons of The New Yorker.

Bob discusses classic New Yorker cartoons, subway inspiration, and how the almost ten pound volume is “not just a book, it’s a workout.”

It’s about nine minutes long and includes commentary from cartoonist Matthew Diffee at no extra charge! Give it a listen!

(BTW, I’ll be writing a book review as soon as I can give the behemoth book adequate attention.)
