Far Side Gallery 3 Hardcover Special Sales

A book by Gary Larson

< read all 1 reviews

Outstanding examples of biting and accurate parody of the human and animal worlds

  • Apr 17, 2010
Rating:

In the foreword, noted zoologist Stephen Jay Gould comments on how popular the Gary Larson cartoons are with biologists. When reading the book, it is easy to see why; Larson does an excellent job in his satire of science and the people that do it. They are hilarious, yet as is always the case in the best of parody, contain more than a little truth. Light hearted with a little bite, these cartoons are expressions of absurdity that point out the inherent absurdity of the modern world and human and animal nature.

Wiki

This collection of "The Far Side" cartoons is taken from "Hound of the Far Side", "The Far Side Observer" and "Night of the Crash-Test Dummies". Yet again, the author's odd and dark sense of humour is expressed in the doings of man and beast.--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
