Overview


For three decades, the nationally-syndicated cartoonist Nicole Hollander has channeled her ascerbic wit and razor-sharp sensibilities through the incomparable and irascible Sylvia, a Chicago original whose hilarious commentary on American life has won over millions of loyal readers. The Sylvia Chronicles presents Sylvia’s singular take on contemporary politics, from the early days of Reagan to the latter days of Palin. Along the way, she takes on subjects as varied as varied as the hazards of allowing death row convicts a last smoke, an imaginary exchange with Donald Rumsfeld’ younger brother, and the dangers of texting while driving an SUV and reaching across the seat for a snickers bar -- recording not only the most memorable, and memorably outrageous, events of the past three decades, but also the often-overlooked absurdities of our daily lives.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Since the mid-1970s, the widely syndicated Sylvia has provided an edgy, feminist-political complement to the domesticity of Lynn Johnston's For Better or for Worse and the personal gal-dramas of Cathy Guisewite's Cathy. With an introduction by Mr. Not-Nice-Either, Jules Feiffer.
