Phil Somerville's cartoons bear quiet witness to the absurd, the foolish, the frail, the whimsical, the paradoxical, and all sorts of other human stuff. They freeze a moment or unfurl a story, all of which overlay an optimistic cri de coeur: laugh 'til you think! He draws country roads and city crowds, T-shirts and toilets, balloons, beaches, parking meters, dogs, little men in glasses, and multi-coloured testicles. He draws about alienation, intimacy, sex, death, God, fear, jingoism, delusion, the cosmos and multi-coloured testicles. This collection, including new cartoons and many originally published in The Bulletin, Nexus, The Australian's Review of Books and weekly in The Sydney Morning Herald, ranges from the pointed to the playful, from the sublime to the anal. They are here safely locked up between paperback covers for the first time.
