"Mark Podwal's original drawings . . . reflect his great talent."--Elie Wiesel
Mark Podwal may be best known for his political drawings on the New York Times op-ed page. Here, he focuses on the human body as a medical specimen, visually representing the essence of the major public health issues of our time. These strangely beautiful images reveal a master's hand.
Mark Podwal's most recent book is Jerusalem Sky (2005); his You Never Know (1998), with Francine Prose, won a National Jewish Book Award. He lives in Harrison, New York.
