This is the best book by a cartoonist I ever saw. -- Ray Charles No President in history has been treated as mean by Bill Sanders as me. Sad. Sad. -- Donald Trump In Against the Grain, Bill Sanders offers revealing insights into the makings of a bitingly good editorial cartoon, while highlighting the juicy scandals and bureaucratic wranglings of five presidential administrations from Eisenhower to Trump. Sumptuously illustrated with some of his best work, Sanders's witty and engaging memoir makes irresistible reading for humor buffs and political junkies alike. -- Booklist In Against the Grain, a political cartoonist shares his work and memories of his career while lamenting the current state of journalism and politics. The tone of his writing suggests a genial man, but Sanders has spent an illustrious career wielding a sharp pen. His memoir serves as an overview of the political currents that have roiled the nation. His work potently captures the tumult of the civil rights era, Vietnam War, Watergate, and, most recently, what he considers the unfathomable election of Donald Trump. A solid encapsulation of a significant, occasionally controversial career. -- Kirkus Reviews If this book had come out last year, I'd be President. -- Hillary Clinton A gorgeously designed book, Against the Grain by Bill Sanders is a fresh, exciting look at several decades of US political history along with insights into the challenges of a demanding cartooning career. -- Ft. Myers/Southwest Florida Magazine Against the Grain is certified 100 percent gluten-free. Read it and take years off your mental health. -- Dr. Oz

Author Information

Bill Sanders was born in Springfield, Tennessee, and grew up in Pompano, Florida. He attended Western Kentucky University on a football scholarship and in 1953 set an NCAA record for pass completions. After earning his BA in English, he served in the U.S. Army in Korea and Japan, then worked as a writer for Pacific Stars and Stripes. After returning to the U.S. he worked as a widely syndicated political cartoonist for the Greensboro Daily News, the Kansas City Star, and the Milwaukee Journal. Newsweek called him an ornery and unorthodox cartoonist whose stinging bite rivals that of Herblock. Saturday Review said his work could make the opposition gag on their morning breakfast. Presidents, congressmen, senators, ambassadors, and the Smithsonian have collected Sanders's cartoons. He and his pen have also been featured in seven books of political essays and cartoons and on PBS, CBS, NBC, and the BBC. Jules Feiffer is an American syndicated cartoonist and author, who is considered the most widely read satirist in the country. He won the Pulitzer Prize in 1986 as America's leading editorial cartoonist, and in 2004 he was inducted into the Comic Book Hall of Fame. He wrote the animated short Munro, which won an Academy Award for Best Animated Short Film in 1961. The Library of Congress has recognized his remarkable legacy, from 1946 to the present, as a cartoonist, playwright, screenwriter, adult and children's book author, illustrator, and art instructor.
