Another podcast from The Virtual Memories Show and this time around the subject is Richard Gehr, the author of I Only Read It For the Cartoons, a brand new collection of interviews with a number of New Yorker cartoonists, including Victoria Roberts, Arnie Levin, Jack Ziegler, Bob Mankoff, Lee Lorenz, and George Booth.
Out today is Richard Gehr’s I Only Read It for the Cartoons (New Harvest), a collection of interviews with the following: Lee Lorenz, Sam Gross, Roz Chast, George Booth, Edward Koren, Charles Barsotti, Arnie Levin, Victoria Roberts, Gahan Wilson, Jack Ziegler, Zach Kanin, and Bob Mankoff.
