Women Are from Venus, Men Are Idiots Hardcover – January 11, 2011
by John McPherson (Author)
Inside Women Are from Venus, Men Are Idiots, Close to Home cartoonist John McPherson illustrates what happens when planets–and planetary beings–just don’t seem to align. From memorable Thanksgiving TV-carving dinners to disjointed marriage counseling sessions, McPherson culls more than 75 relationship-specific, full-color panels inside this interplanetary ode to coupledom.
McPherson’s mastery in Close to Home is elevating the mundane to the magnificent. The caustic interactions between balding, bespeckled middle-aged men and auburn-haired, beehive-tressed women become achingly funny when sketched by his pen. Appearing in more than 700 newspapers internationally, McPherson’s Close to Home is one of the most popular card lines from Recycled Paper Greetings.
