9780066213934: Schulz and Peanuts: A Biography

Charles M. Schulz, the most widely syndicated and beloved cartoonist of all time, is also one of the least understood figures in American culture. Now, acclaimed biographer David Michaelis gives us the first full-length biography of the brilliant, unseen man behind Peanuts: at once a creation story, a portrait of a native genius, and a chronicle contrasting the private man with the central role he played in shaping the national imagination. Schulz and Peanuts is the definitive epic biography of an American icon and the unforgettable characters he created.

Review:

“A fascinating account of an artist who devoted his life to his work.” (Publishers Weekly (starred review))

“Michaelis takes us on a wondrous journey through the worlds of Charlie Brown and Charles Schulz.” (Walter Isaacson)

“After you read this book you will know the genius that went into every single line that Charles Schulz drew.” (Chris Ware)

“An insightful rendering of the life of this American treasure.” (Walter Cronkite)

“Michaelis offers . . . all that’s needed about a prodigy of American cultural history.” (Kirkus Reviews)

“An extraordinary achievement . . . that shrinks Schulz down to human size and enlarges our love of his work.” (Time magazine)

“This fall’s breakout biography.” (GQ)
