What’s that cartoon?
Oops. Amazon left off the last question in Kerry Trueman’s interview.
KT: And what a bonus to get to the end of the book and find that wonderful cartoon of yourself by Clay Bennett! How did that come about?
I know. I love it. Minutes before the book was being sent to press, my editor realized that there were a couple of blank pages at the end. And I didn’t have a bio in the book. Why not commission a cartoon? Clay Bennett is the only one of the cartoonists I’ve met—I went to a talk he gave in New York at the launch of another Cartoonist Group book—and I very much enjoy his work, as who does not? He’s the editorial cartoonist for the Chattanooga Times Free Press and won a Pulitzer Prize at some point. He produced the cartoon over that weekend. I think it’s the perfect way to end the book.
