If These Books Could Talk, 

This Is What They’d Say

In a collection of one-page graphic stories, anthropomorphic 
books and imaginative characters take on God, museums, 
and identity crises.

Gauld’s comments on 21st-century culture may be sadly true, but his jabs at politics are probably his most poignant. In “The Angry Mob,” most of the people are either “not sure,” “pretending to be angry,” or “just like being in a mob.” One of the last few comics is of a circular orange person at a museum, laughing at all the art about stupid green, purple, and blue people, but getting really angry at the depiction of an “orange nitwit.” Get it? We didn’t need to know a single thing about Moby Dick for that one.
Tom Gauld’s Baking with Kafka is published by Drawn & Quarterly and available October 3. In October and November, Gauld will be touring bookstores in the UK, FranceTexas, California, Washington, and Oregon.
