A droll, slightly jaundiced look at contemporary morés, this mini collection of very short illustrated stories reaches below the funny bone to expose insights and truths about who we are and what we are becoming.
Even in the best of times, life has always been complicated and confusing. But the new social and technological dynamics that have taken over our world since the turn of the century have flummoxed us beyond belief (and maybe redemption). Navigating through this bewildering minefield called life while keeping your sense of humor intact is what Eric Nielsson's Cautionary Tales for the New Millennium is about. In just a few words, he manages to capture the droll, ironic realities of the modern everyday while making us think (and smile).
Jay Munro's illustrations offer delightful counterpoint to Eric Nielsson's tales of woe and wonder, and the combination is a memorable collection that is reminiscent of The New Yorker's old short humor pieces.
