"Garry Trudeau is the premier American social and political satirist of his time." --Newsweek
"Not since Thomas Nast has there been a more effective political and social cartoonist." --Oakland Tribune
Doonesbury has managed to be articulate, abrasive, political, compassionate, misunderstood, misprinted, and outrageous--but one thing it's never been is complacent. Garry Trudeau's creation has chronicled American history and culture in a parallel universe. And through it all, Doonesbury has always been honest, entertaining, and way, way cool.
In Flashbacks, Trudeau collects his thoughts and cartoons in a highly annotated four-color book. Through its pages, Flashbacks reunites the disparate personalities that make up the cast of Doonesbury: Mike, Zonker, Boopsie, Joanie, Lacey Davenport, Mark Slackmeyer, and, of course, Uncle Duke.
Flashbacks is a compendium of the many singular moments of Doonesbury, moments that mark the times of our own lives.
