Your concern about global warming has been placed in a queue and will be answered by the first available government that gives a damn . . ." -Judy Horacek

More About Make Cakes Not War
Judy Horacek tackles themes of female empowerment, environmental responsibility, and social justice, along with dishwashing and talking animals, in her stateside debut.
From pertinent and profound to silly and surreal, Make Cakes Not War is filled with witty, instantly recognizable reflections of our own anxieties, delusions, excesses, and experiences. Horacek forces us to confront our realities, ranging from the perfect tropical sunset spoiled by the lack of decent mobile phone reception to a Gandhi-quoting panel that asks, "What difference does it make to the dead, the orphans, and the homeless, whether the mad destruction is wrought under the name of totalitarianism or the holy name of liberty or democracy?"
