Overview

The beloved New Yorker cartoonist Jack Ziegler is back with a perfect postprandial treat. What better way to wash down his previous book of food cartoons, How's the Squid? , than with this sparkling volume of 122 cartoons on drink and drinking.

Olive or Twist? serves up a cocktail of laughter, taking in top-shelf treats (Could Chianti, Burgundy, and Rioja all come from the feet of the same Frenchman?) and low-grade liquor (Bar beer options: "Import, Domestic, Micro, or Crap?"). And Ziegler is just as much at home in the ritziest bar ("Meanwhile at the Cafe de la Mort: Ernest Hemingway is ridiculing Oscar Wilde's wine spritzer while Truman Capote takes notes") as he is in the dingiest dive ("Slumlords Top o' the Tenement Bar & Grill"). This volume is the ideal pick-me-up, guaranteed not only to banish booze blues but to leave the reader, like the title character, begging for more.

Author Bio: Jack Ziegler has published more than 1,000 cartoons in The New Yorker since his first work appeared there in 1974. His work also appears regularly in Playboy and other periodicals, and he has illustrated a number of humor and children's books. Ziegler currently divides his time between Las Vegas and a little pied-�-terre on the moon.
