Description
Since his first published New Yorker cartoon, in 1977, Bob Mankoff has been making us laugh, and since he became the magazine's cartoon editor in 1997, he's been the one deciding what's funny enough to be a New Yorker cartoon. In this hilarious memoir of cartoons—his own, and those of colleagues past and present—Mankoff looks at both his career and the psychology of cartooning, analyzing why some cartoons work and others don't. He explores the process of creating cartoons, deconstructs what makes a New Yorker cartoon (including the ones people don't "get"), explains how he launched the Cartoon Bank, and offers valuable tips for success in the Cartoon Caption Contest.

"Mankoff's deep understanding of humor, both its power and its practice, is the live wire that crackles through his new book.... How About Never is more than a memoir ... it's also an enormous window into the mystery and alchemy behind the creation and selection of New Yorker cartoons."—Washington Post

"This is a generous book, giving abundant credit to both the older generation of cartoonists whom the young Mr. Mankoff hero-worshiped to the new blood he has brought to the magazine during his tenure."—NYTimes
