GET WELL By Michael Leunig (PB)
Get Well is a collection of Michael Leunig’s work over the past four years – a time when, quite simply, all has not been well with the world.
‘Simple rhymes, homemade aphorisms, sentimental yearnings, many daggy jokes, funny faces and mysteries from the heart abound in this collection of cartoons – which cause me to wonder what is becoming of me and my world.’
– Michael Leunig
Deceptively wise, heartbreakingly beautiful and just plain hilarious, Get Well is a robust selection from Michael Leunig’s work over the past four years – a time when, quite remarkably, all has not been well with the world.
More than ever Leunig shines a light on questions about sanity and madness, innocence and corruption, friendliness and unfriendliness, joy and despair, and the possibility of an overriding eternal wisdom and beauty.
Get Well is the book we all need right now – just the tonic for these strange times.
