Summary

Summary

Baxter's drawings and text are reminiscent of the 1930's adventure story illustrations and the "See Jane run" books, which is why you may feel like coloring them in when you look at them. But his irreverent and wildly funny work, with all its odd takes on life, will surprise you in how keenly it reflects the "real" world. And therein is the brilliance of Glen Baxter: his unhinged world turns out to be the one we all live in. Here is a welcome anthology of three of Baxter's out-of-print books: Atlas, The Impending Gleam, and Jodhpurs in the Quantocks.
