A comprehensive investigation of the formative Jewish influence upon the rise & development of American pop culture, drawing upon oral histories with several generations of Jewish artists, little-utilized Yiddish scholarship, & the author’s own connections with today’s comic-strip artists. Shows how the rich legacy of Yiddish prepared would-be artists to absorb the culture of their surrounding environments, seeing the world through the eyes of others, & producing the talent required for theater, films, TV, pop music, & comics. Illustrated with the work of Harvey Pekar & R. Crumb, Art Spiegelman, Ben Katchor, Trina Robbins, & others. “Full of humor & new revelations into the power of popular art to spark insight & encourage the endless quest for freedom.”
