Stephan Pastis: Pearls Hogs the Road

The Ivy Bookshop

Move over! Pearls Before Swine is back and badder than ever in the new treasury collection Pearls Hogs the Road. New York Times bestselling author Stephan Pastis punches with the satirical wit and cynical commentary that devotees have come to love—covering everything from puns to politics. The Pearls gang returns with characteristically misanthropic humor (but more leather). No self-aggrandizing is too flagrant for Rat, no subject is too erudite for Goat and no sensory input is too basic for Pig. All topics are fair game: comic strip censors, apathetic baristas and IRS employees are all strongly advised to laugh or get out of the way. Pearls Hogs the Road also features playful and illuminating author commentary, a bonus section where Pastis revises his own work and three strips illustrated by the legendary Bill Watterson of Calvin and Hobbes, who ended a 19-year hiatus to collaborate with Pastis. Pearls Before Swine appears in more than 750 newspapers and has sold over half a million books. Pearls Hogs the Road continues the celebration of satire, snark and sarcasm that is sure to make readers everywhere smile.

Stephan Pastis is an attorney turned cartoonist. A graduate of the University of California, Berkeley, and the UCLA School of Law, he worked as a lawyer before trying his hand at cartooning. Pastis lives in the Bay Area with his wife and two children
