There's a Hair in My Dirt!

A Worm's Story

Once upon a time in a place far away, lived a man named Gary Larson who used to draw cartoons. It was a cartoon that appeared for many years in daily newspapers and was loved by millions. (And was confusing to millions more.) But one day he stopped.
Gary went into hiding. He made a couple short films. He played his guitar. He threw sticks for his dogs. They threw some back.
Yet Gary was restless. He couldn't sleep nights. Something haunted him. (Besides Gramps.) Something that would return him to his roots in biology, drawing and dementia--a tale called There's a Hair in My Dirt! A Worm's Story .
It begins a few inches underground, when a young worm, during a typical family dinner, discovers there's a hair in his plate of dirt. He becomes rather upset, not just about his tainted meal but about his entire miserable, wormy life. This, in turn, spurs his father to tell him a story--a story to inspire the children of invertebrates everywhere.
And so Father Worm describes the saga of a fair young maiden and her adventuresome stroll through her favorite forest, a perambulator's paradise. It is a journey filled with mystery and magic. Or so she thinks.
Which is all we'll say for now.
What exactly does the maiden encounter?
Does Son Worm learn a lesson?
More important, does he eat his plate of fresh dirt?
Well, you'll have to read to find out, but let's just say the answers are right under your feet.
Written and illustrated in a children's storybook style, There's a Hair in My Dirt! A Worm's Story is a twisted take on the difference between our idealized view of Nature and the sometimes cold, hard reality of life for the birds and the bees and the worms (not to mention our own species).
Told with his trademark off-kilter humor, this first original non-- Far Side book is the unique work of a comic master.
Now Larson can finally sleep at night. Question is, will you?
Portrait
Gary Larson wurde in Tacoma, Washington, geboren. Als Kind zeichnete er gerne, doch seine wahre Liebe galt der Biologie. 1976 begann der Siegeszug seines unvergleichlichen Humors, seine phänomenal erfolgreiche Cartoonserie unter dem Titel 'The Far Side' veröffentlicht er seit 1980. Für seine Arbeiten wurde er mit Auszeichnungen regelrecht überschüttet (u. a. 'Max & Moritz' Preis des Internationalen Comic Salons für die beste Cartoonserie der Welt), außerdem wurden ein Schmetterling und eine Beißlaus nach ihm benannt. 1800 Zeitungen auf der ganzen Welt veröffentlichen seine Werke. Mit rund 22 Millionen verkauften Büchern ist er einer der erfolgreichsten Cartoonisten unserer Zeit. Gary Larson lebt in Seattle, Washington, USA.
Zitat
"The comic genius, the author of the blackly buoyant and sorely missed "Far Side" comic strip ... Mr. Larson is among us again, not as a syndicated cartoonist, but as a contemporary fabulist." -- "New York Times""" There's a Hair in My Dirt!" is hysterical . . . more entertaining than any science class I remember and the foreword by biologist Edward O. Wilson proves it's legit."-- "Washington Post"
