Flashbacks: Twenty-Five Years of Doonesbury

“Garry Trudeau is the premier American social and political satirist of his time.” —Newsweek

“Not since Thomas Nast has there been a more effective political and social cartoonist.” —Oakland Tribune

Doonesbury has managed to be articulate, abrasive, political, compassionate, misunderstood, misprinted, and outrageous–but one thing it’s never been is complacent. Garry Trudeau’s creation has chronicled American history and culture in a parallel universe. And through it all, Doonesbury has always been honest, entertaining, and way, way cool.

In Flashbacks, Trudeau collects his thoughts and cartoons in a highly annotated four-color book. Through its pages, Flashbacks reunites the disparate personalities that make up the cast of Doonesbury: Mike, Zonker, Boopsie, Joanie, Lacey Davenport, Mark Slackmeyer, and, of course, Uncle Duke.

Flashbacks is a compendium of the many singular moments of Doonesbury, moments that mark the times of our own lives.
