Wreckage Begins with "W": Cartoons of the Bush Administrationby Frank Miller, Jeff Danziger (Commentaries by)
JEFF DANZIGER IS an independent political cartoonist whose work appears in hundreds of newspapers around the world via the New York Times Syndicate. He draws from six to ten cartoons a week on a wide variety of subjects, from international folly to Hollywood hubris. An equal opportunity satirist, he is politically to the left of Genghis Kahn — everyone and everything is fair game. His dark drawings, pull-no-punches humor, and “Danziger” signature line are instantly recognizable to any regular reader of newspaper opinion pages. As with any great political humorist, Danziger’s funniest creations lampoon the most deadly serious subjects. Created in the heat of the moment and collected here for the first time, Danziger’s cartoons of George W. Bush’s ascent to the White House and first term in office amount to a highly entertaining excursion through the national and international political landscape of the past four years. Wreckage Begins with “W” showcases a singular wit and an artist of uncanny prescience.

Meet the Author
A native New Yorker, Jeff Danziger has been cartooning for nearly twenty-five years, starting at the Rutland (Vermont) Herald in 1975, to which he still contributes. He has worked at the New York Daily News (1982-86) and the Christian Science Monitor (1986-96), where he was twice a Pulitzer finalist. He has traveled widely and won an Overseas Press Award in 1993. This year he was awarded the Population Institute’s Press Award for Cartoons on the subject of global population growth.
Danziger served involuntarily in the U.S. Army from 1967-71 and was awarded the Bronze Star and Air Medal for his service as an intelligence officer and linguist in Vietnam in 1970. He has published one novel about the war, Rising Like the Tucson (Doubleday 1991). He has also published ten books of cartoons. In addition to regular political cartoons, his illustrations have appeared in the New Yorker, the Atlantic Monthly, the Times of London, and the American Prospect.
He lives in Manhattan in what has so far (sixteen years) been a committed relationship with a nonsmoking female heterosexual. Plus two cats.
