Jules Feiffer Interview

March 7th, 2010 by Lewis Frumkes

Jules Feiffer’s Pulitzer-winning comic strip ran for forty-two years in the Village Voice and one hundred other papers. A literary giant, Feiffer won an Obie Award for his play, Little Murders, plaudits for his screenplay Carnal Knowledge and an Oscar for his short animation Munro. In fact the list of his creative output is so distinguished I would need three pages to do it justice. . . for example do you remember the children’s classic The Phantom Tollbooth? So it was a delight to have Jules come in and chat with me about his life, his career, and his latest book Backing Into Forward which has received rave reviews in the New York Times and just about the entire review press. We not only had a ball, but Jules left me with a cartoon contribution to a new book I am working on called FAVORITE WORDS OF FAMOUS PEOPLE. More about that another time. Join me here and rejoice in the life of Jules Feiffer.
