Darryl Cunningham with Sarah Glidden
Virtually visiting (we believe) from his home in the UK, acclaimed graphic narrative author Darryl Cunningham comes this way with his newest, Billionaires: The Lives of the Rich and Powerful (Drawn + Quarterly). Billionaires focuses on the stories of Jeff Bezos, the Koch Brothers, and Rupert Murdoch - four among the possible - tracing their various pathways through life and ideology.
"A witty but brutal critique of capitalism and corruption.” - Publishers Weekly.
“If you want to know why the world is such a mess, Darryl Cunningham provides a gripping and necessary briefing. His graphic novel Billionaires is some of the best comics journalism I’ve ever read. Cunningham manages to distill a tremendous amount of essential facts about some of the most dangerous and destructive people on earth, information made indelible by his low-key, acerbic cartooning. The drawings are remarkable, varied, and always on point.” Jeet Heer, The Nation.
Joining Darryl Cunningham in conversation will be Sarah Glidden, whose books include How to Understand Israel in 60 Days or Less and Rolling Blackouts.
