Jules Feiffer on NPR

In today’s New York Times Michiko Kakutani lavishes praise on Jules Feiffer’s memoir Backing Into Forward, which she writes, “succeeds in sounding like the best of Mr. Feiffer’s cartoons: funny, acerbic, subversive, fiercely attuned to the absurdities in his own life and in the country at large.” Tune in to The Diane Rehm Show at 11:00 this morning to hear the cartoonist, playwright and author tell how he went from a self-described wimpy kid from the Bronx to one of the 20th century’s most famous voices of satire and dissent.
