2018 EISNER AWARD-WINNER - BEST HUMOUR PUBLICATION In Baking with Kafka, Tom Gauld asks the questions no one else dares ask about civilisation as we know it. - How do you get published during a skeleton apocalypse? - What was the secret of Kafka's lemon drizzle cake? - And what plot possibilities does the exploding e-cigarette offer modern mystery writers? A riotous collection of laugh-out-loud cartoons in his signature style, Baking with Kafka reaffirms Gauld's position as a first-rate cartoonist, creating work infused with a deep understanding of both literary and cartoon history.

A quietly essential read * * Wired * * His economical art . . . is married to dry, incisive humor, making each strip a carefully composed marvel * * Publishers Weekly * * The ironic takes on key moments in history and literature (Armstrong on the moon, Cathy and Heathcliff wandering the moor) will certainly elicit a few laughs * * Vogue * * Gauld's deceptively simple panels and sparse, understated dialogue speak poetically . . . Gauld finds humour and hope - as well as coffee and doughnuts - in his portrait of a fading utopia * * Guardian * * Precise and wryly hilarious * * NPR, Best Books of 2013 * *
