Well here’s something to look forward to next Spring: a memoir by Bruce Eric Kaplan, familiar to New Yorker cartoon enthusiasts as BEK. The book, I Was A Child: A Memoir is due April 14, 2015 from Blue Rider Press.
Here’s a blurb about it from Lena Dunham (Mr. Kaplan is a producer of Ms. Dunham’s HBO television show, Girls):
“In his poetically illustrated memoir, Bruce Eric Kaplan manages to capture all that is beautiful, hilarious and painful about growing up human. He will make you laugh with recognition, cry with nostalgia and longing, and somehow wish you were growing up bored in New Jersey.”
