Hard on the heels of the bestseller, `Zapiro - The Madiba Years', comes Zapiro's second collection of brilliant cartoons. As South Africans grapple with the present, the future and the past, Zapiro's pen constantly provokes hilarity and debate around dinner tables and in the corridors of power. "The Apartheid dinosaurs were easy targets. These days the political landscape is more nuanced. To go for a belly-laugh or to go for the jugular - that is the question," says Zapiro, a. k. a. Jonathan Shapiro, whose work appears regularly in the `Mail and Guardian', `Sowetan', and `Cape Argus', and is reprinted widely in other publications. He has had solo exhibitions in Johannesburg, Cape Town and New York.
