For close to three decades, Steve Brodner has been the most savage editorial cartoonist/illustrator working in the United States. A superlative craftsman as a caricaturist (he doubles as a celebrity caricaturist) and a no-holds-barred satirist, Brodner is a familiar and beloved contributor to The New Yorker, Rolling Stone, The Atlantic, Harper's, The New York Times, and every other magazine that counts. Freedom Fries is Brodner's absurdly nightmarish journey through the last 30 years of American politics. What a cast of characters: Nixon, Ford, Carter, Reagan, Bush I, Clinton, Bush II. And those are just the presidents! In addition to the hundreds and hundreds of mostly full-color cartoons (all shot from Brodner's original art), this volume includes Brodner's own acid-tipped commentary and behind-the-scenes scoops (the Martha Stewart anecdote alone is priceless), plus a handful of unpublished cartoons that were just too hot to handle (targeting the Pope and Rush Limbaugh, among others), a "Bushanos" fold-out, and an introduction by Harper's Magazine's Lewis Lapham. Freedom Fries fits squarely into the tradition of provocative commentary by such firebrands as Michael Moore and Al Franken — except this time, it's visual!

"A great American rebel and crusader — a kind of 21st century Thomas Paine, armed with an illustrator's pen." – Katrina Vanden Heuvel, editor of The Nation

"Freedom Fries is cartoonist Steve Brodner's hilarious, acid-tipped odyssey trough 25 years of politics." – Mother Jones

"This volume is a cynical, vitriolic gem that also offers considerable artistic merit." – Publishers Weekly

"Magnificient package of pure visual nitroglycerine." – The Nation
