The latest American Bystander (March 2020) has landed on my desk — it’s a treat! Here are The New Yorker cartoonists whose contributions you’ll find in the issue (and in the case of John Cuneo, on the issue’s cover):
George Booth (besides a full-page Booth drawing there’s a lovely photo of Mr. Booth on the very last page), Roz Chast (a two-page spread of her cartoons), Sam Gross (in “Sam’s Spot”, a regular Bystander feature), Peter Kuper, David Ostow, Ali Solomon, Rich Sparks, Cerise Zelenetz, and P.S. Mueller.
A bonus in every issue — I see it as a bonus anyway — are the numerous full page ads for books by cartoonists (no surprise, I’m particularly fond of the books by New Yorker contributors). In this issue we see an ad for Rich Spark’s cartoon collection, Love And Other Weird Things, Ben Katchor’s The Dairy Restaurant, Robert Grossman’s Life On The Moon, Roz Chast’s & Patty Marx’s You Can Only Yell At Me For One Thing At A Time, Peter Kuper’s adaptation of Joseph Conrad’s Heart Of Darkness, and John Donohue’s All The Restaurants In New York.
Jason Chatfield’s Covid-19 Diary
The New Yorker cartoonist Jason Chatfield draws and writes about his recent experience with the “invisible enemy.” So very glad to hear he and his wife have fully recovered.
