Abstract:

[In this book we find Cantor] using George Herriman's old comic characters to explore the psychosexual underpinnings of the atomic age and the bomb's effects on personality and culture. Cantor turns the novel's central difficulty--how to create complex characters from cartoon images--into its central metaphor, using their two-dimensionality as a reflection of the contemporary psyche. Though the parodies are sometimes strained, Cantor successfully combines social satire and psychological insight into a blackly comic tour-de-force. --Lawrence Rungren, Library Journal.
