Hard on the heels of the bestseller, `Zapiro – The Madiba
Years‘, comes Zapiro’s second collection of brilliant
cartoons. As South Africans grapple with the present, the
future and the past, Zapiro’s pen constantly provokes
hilarity and debate around dinner tables and in the
corridors of power. „The Apartheid dinosaurs were easy
targets. These days the political landscape is more nuanced.
To go for a belly-laugh or to go for the jugular – that is
the question,“ says Zapiro, a. k. a. Jonathan Shapiro,
whose work appears regularly in the `Mail and Guardian‘,
`Sowetan‘, and `Cape Argus‘, and is reprinted widely in
other publications. He has had solo exhibitions in
Johannesburg, Cape Town and New York.
