He’s a graduate of the University of California at Berkeley and of the UCLA School of Law, and worked as a lawyer before switching to his new career path. I must admit I’d never heard of him or of his series before discovering this, but I look forward to reading it.
From the publisher’s blurb:
Stephan Pastis offers Pearls Before Swine fans a visit to the other side of the looking glass with his latest collection, Larry in Wonderland. Collecting almost a year’s worth of strips, Larry in Wonderland offers cutting-edge commentary on recent news events, popular culture, and cartoon-page contemporaries, and imparts the knowledge that in Wonderland, crocodiles taste a lot like chicken.
Through Pastis’s mindful menagerie of characters, including the Mad Ducker, Cheshire Snuffles, Tweedledum Pig, and Tweedledee Idiot Pig, along with Raterpillar, Zebra, and Larry the Croc, Pearls Before Swineexpertly illustrates the flaws and shortcomings of human nature, while remaining “indifferent” to conventional cartoon molds such as plotline “continuity.” In the words of Raterpillar, “Plotline schmotline.”
With multiple honors as Best Comic Strip of the Year by the National Cartoonists Society, and an international fan base that follows the strip’s appearance in more than 600 newspapers worldwide, Pearls Before Swinetransports readers to a world of shifting perspectives and alternate realities, like the one presented insideLarry in Wonderland.
