Before The Far Side, Doonesbury and Pearls Before Swine, Krazy Kat was the hippest comic strip around. This brilliant biography is the saga of its enigmatic creator, George Herriman. An African-American who “passed” as white, he fashioned a work of art on a weekly basis as surreal, hilarious, touching and ultimately American as jazz.
