From the back cover:
"... What’s in this book? Crumb’s complicated life is laid out and his numerous pop culture influences are cataloged. From Crumb’s childhood letters and first attempts at comics to his vastly influential early books such as ZAP and Motor City Comics, the most significant and interesting work by Crumb is analyzed. Also covered is Crumb’s relationship to music, the movies by and about him, and the remarkable change his work took in the ’80s. Also in the book, which is the first critical study of Crumb’s work published in English, the cartoonist is assessed as an important writer. The book concludes with a rare interview with the reclusive cartoonist.
This 160 page paperback is new as published but shows very minor shelfwear.
