Book review: Schulz
A cartoonist plays out his mid-life crises in his cartoons. Every fight Linus or Charlie Brown had with Lucy turns out to mirror whatever disagreement he was having with his wife.
And then came the girlfriends, and then the new, younger wife, who was married when they met.
The book seems to skip the 80s. We get the marriage turmoil and remarriage of the late 60s, early 70s, and next thing we know, he's on his death bed.
The writer tells us a lot about the skating rink Schulz built with his millions, but it never mentions if it's still in operation. Is it?
Otherwise, a good read about a man who only on the surface seems uncomplicated.
