Doonesbury Nation

A Doonesbury Book

  ”Trudeau finds angles.” —Jerry Seinfeld

  While millions of pilgrims flock to upstate New York for the 25th anniversary of Woodstock, Zonker flashes back to the original (acid triage, the bummer tent, Hendrix eating his guitar) with memories made all the more poignant by the fact that they’re hallucinatory. His response to this revelation: “Whoa! Do you suppose I wasn’t at the moon landing either?”

  While Zonk wasn’t there, he is here, and here is surreal enough. Tobacco executives swearing under oath that smoking is as safe as eating Twinkies; Ollie North wrapping himself in a Confederate battle flag; and the president devolving into a flying waffle—who said the sixties had the corner on weirdness? As refreshing as a full pitcher of Kool-Aid, this mind-altering collection from G.B. Trudeau, Doonesbury Nation, is only the latest to pose the question: Is it real—or is it Doonesbury?
