One of the most respected and accomplished comic artists of his generation, Thorne writes and illustrates this snappy memoir about coming of age in the spring of '46, describing his growing passion for popular culture, his growing interest in drawing and playing the coronet, and his budding sexuality. Copiously illustrated with over 80 exquisite pencil drawings that capture the feel of the period and complement the prose, this is the most moving and eloquent memoir of a cartoonist ever written or drawn (or both). A unique work of remembrance, both in terms of style and content.
