Who but heor Oscar Wilde, were he still with ushas the wit and speed his urbane little figures display in wounding one another's egos whenever they are together?

What People are saying about this

Bill Plympton
Mr. Guest's cartoons are incredibly hilarious and witty.....I hope he gets carpal tunnel syndrome.
Peter Beard
With a dip-in Peter Arnautlike pen that splits open like a viper's tongue at your cocktail party, a sort of Anthony Haden-Guest Picasso-type profile character says things like, 'After all, a little anthrax isn't the end of the world.' I got that one in 1999ahead of its time, but the Brits are ahead of us and this one's an outstanding example.
