Children, octogenarians, and everyone in between know the work of William Steig, the beloved cartoonist and award-winning children's book author whose work graced the covers and pages of the New Yorker for more than 70 years. In Cats, Dogs, Men, Women, Ninnies & Clowns: The Lost Art of William Steig, Jeanne Steig uncovers more than 450 never-before-published cartoons by her husband and provides personal insight and anecdotes about his work and her relationship with Bill, shedding new light on this celebrated genius.
Praise for Cats, Dogs, Men,Women, Ninnies & Clowns:
“What a splendid gift it would be if the works tearing up the best-seller lists weren't that of a Stieg Larsson, but a Steig, William.”
