More about When I Talk to You
When asked to pen a weekly cartoon for Melbourne's Sunday Age newspaper more than 15 years ago, Michael Leunig struggled with the idea of creating just another humor strip. He recognized the need to offset the anxiety and distress found in the news but was determined to take a decidedly different approach from his cartooning peers.
The result was a cartoon that delivered a spiritual message with its inspirational words and straightforward, poignant drawings. Before long, it developed a huge, faithful following and turned Leunig into an Australian national treasure.
Now, he is sharing his illuminating prayers and drawings worldwide in When I Talk to You, a collection of more than 80 of his poignant prayers and delightful drawings. The book looks at life in all its sadness, joy, and-at times-seeming absurdity, and offers people hope through the power of prayer.
Leunig's encouraging words are part inspiration, part desperation-capturing one man's quest for love, the spirit, and a better world. It's a search that resonates with anyone who has ever grappled with life and its unpredictable ways.
