Outta the blue last night, I got the nicest e-mail from my old college English professor, with praise for the “Literature” book. Apparently, she tracked me down just to let me know the book cracked her up. And lemme tell you: What an awesome endorsement that is. If the book can crack up a double-doctorate on Emily Dickinson and Herman Melville then THIS IS A BOOK THAT HAS DONE ITS JOB, MY FRIENDS.
Not familiar with the book? It’s the collection that brings together all the literary comics from “Sheldon” into one volume: Literature: Unsuccessfully Competing Against TV Since 1953. It takes on all the greats of Western Lit: From Seuss to Shakespeare, Twain to Tolkien. And if you’re a lover of books, and haven’t tried this one out…now you have the personal endorsement of my third-year English Lit professor to give it a try. 🙂

Edited to add: Hey, neat! …the book just got nominated for an Eisner Award, too. GUESS WHO’S TREATIN’ HIMSELF TO SOME TWO-SCOOP ICE CREAM?
