What's So Funny: A Cartoonist's Memoir

From a longtime New Yorker staff cartoonist David Sipress  comes What’s So Funny?, an evocative family memoir, a love letter to New York City, and a delightful exploration of the origins of creativity—richly interleaved with the author’s witty, beloved cartoons. 

New Yorker writer Tad Friend’s memoir In the Early Times, grapples with being a husband and a father as he tries to grasp who he is as a son. His father, an erudite historian and the former president of Swarthmore College, has long been gregarious and charming with strangers yet cerebral with his children. Tad writes that “trying to reach him always felt like ice fishing.”
