"Too Soon?" you ask?

It's a collection of the last 15 years' worth of Drew Friedman's illustrations, caricatures and portraits lampooning the rich, the famous, the infamous, and the never-will-be-famous.

And promise! no "Friends."

Too Soon? gathers Friedman's best, most strident and scathing work from some of the most popular publications including Time, Newsweek, The New Yorker, The New York Times, Rolling Stone, Entertainment Weekly, The New Republic, The Weekly Standard, Blab! and more yes, even Field & Stream.

Too Soon? casts its net over the entirety of the forced-smiling-celebrity/politico congregation, political animals on one side of the aisle, showbiz beasts on the other... and the sad, innocent victims of their crimes that languish in the middle.

Too Soon? is naturally replete with liver spots, wrinkles, burst capillaries, blood, sweat and tears. No one is spared, no matter which side of the aisle he or she inhabits.

Too Soon? is Friedman's first book of artwork produced in HI-DEF, so be prepared. Drew Friedman's work is always brutally honest, WARTS & ALL.

Too Soon? is in fact not TOO SOON it's about time.

Praise for Drew Friedman:

"I'm grateful to Drew Friedman for every new piece of his vast, riveting panorama of the jacked-up, hellbent American spectacle: comic and horrific, loving and appalled, obsessive and devil-may-care, brilliant and vulgar, familiar and uncanny. He's our William Hogarth and Thomas Rowlandson and George Grosz all wrapped into one." Kurt Andersen, host of NPR's "Studio 360"

"I would like Drew Friedman to draw me, but Im scared of what hed uncover, what hed reveal about my inner nature that Id rather not see. Because thats what he doeshes not a mere caricaturist, hes a ridiculously talented artist whos practically an x-ray machine. One that makes you laugh your balls off. Chip Kidd, author of The Cheese Monkeys

"Friedman's liver-spots-'n'-wrinkles style of cartoon realism is completely mesmerizing..." Entertainment Weekly

"The Thomas Nast of our time." Slate

"Friedman distorts the images we've grown comfortable with, skewering the way we've let addicts and half-wits become our national idols..." The Onion

"Friedman remains the finest, most excruciatingly mordant, somehow most humane caricaturist going". Booklist

"Of low artistic quality." Rush Limbaugh, big fat idiot.
