Tom Gauld

London-based cartoonist Tom Gauld, known for his work with The Guardian as well as such books as Mooncop and You’re All Just Jealous of My Jetpack, visits tonight with Baking with Kafka (Drawn & Quarterly) newly in hand. “...there’s plenty in Baking With Kafka for both writer and reader to share [in] their love of the written word in all its permutations and possibilities. Gauld is at his sardonic best when mix-matching not just genres, but anthropomorphizing literary styles and time-skipping variations on a theme if it helps get the laugh, which are never cheap or mean-spirited; a rarity these days. Gauld shows a clear reverence for not just literature, but those who share and appreciate this funny world of pure imagination.” - Popzara.
