Jules Feiffer - Out of Line

Author Martha Fay in the introduction to her book “Out of Line, the Art of Jules Feiffer”  writes:  “Cartoonist, playwright, Jules Feiffer was born in the Bronx on the eve of the great depression, twin misfortunes of location and timing, in Feiffer’s judgement, except for the fact that the late 1920s and early 1930s were also the Golden Age of Comics.” Jules Feiffer talked about his career and read from his work, collected in Out of Line ,     at Canio’s Books in Sag Harbor in June of this year.   Listen here Jules Feiffer’s work is collected in the book Out of Line by Martha Fay, published in 2015 by Abrams.  Martha Fay is an essayist and the author of several works of nonfiction, including A Mortal Condition and walking guides to New York City, Rome, and Tuscany. She lives in Brooklyn and Italy.
