Publisher Description:
Drawing from the popular comic strip that currently appears in Sunday editions of The Boston Globe, this collection contains the best Harry Fig cartoons of the past two decades, most of which have never before been published in book form. Entertaining but also informative, Harry Fig's Cartoon Boston is a unique, offbeat guide for both longtime residents and tourists who seek an insider's view of all the wikkid pizahhh stuff (Boston drivers, the Sox, weather, and more) that makes life here in the Hub of the universe unlike time spent anywhere else in the galaxy. Through the eyes of mild-mannered city resident Harry Fig, we learn, for example, that the right of way in a rotary always belongs to the driver who looks the most bonkers. Also, did you know that Henry David Thoreau had a secret underground luxury pad? And imagine if local restaurateurs had gone with Hilltop Zucchini House and Illegal Sea Foods as mass-marketing concepts. Cartoonist Peter Wallace's years of experience living in and around Boston have given him the knack for finding nuggets of humor amid the craziness of urban living and for creating a cartoon portrait that makes the reader say That's Boston!
