Critical Times By Peter Brookes
Hand Signed by Peter Brookes to the Title Page
Hardback 1st Edition
New & Unread
Critical Times is the brilliant new collection of acerbic sketches of contemporary political life by The Times’s master of satire, Peter Brookes. Brookes, multiple winner of the British Press Awards Cartoonist of the Year, here showcases the stand-out pieces from his opinion-page cartoons in The Times, each up to the minute and breathtaking in its bite and wit. Critical Times subjects our political overlords to the most brutal of roastings, ridiculing those who profess to lead us and holding the mighty to account. Always hilarious and beautifully crafted, these cartoons – from Brexit to Trump, and back again – are the sumptuous evidence of a contemporary genius at work. Seen through the mind of Peter Brookes evidence that we are indeed living through critical times.
