The hilarious and insightful first collection by Will McPhail, author of In. and cartoonist for the New Yorker.
*From the winner of the 2022 Betty Trask Prize*
With his shrewd eye for mundane absurdities and deeply relatable urban creatures, Will McPhail is one of Britain's most distinctive cartoonists. His cartoons delight in the anxieties of everyday life, skewer modern politics and capture the painful and ridiculous truths behind our behaviours.
In his first collection, new cartoons are united with old favourites: knowing mice and eligible pigeons fill our cities, while the beloved adventures of Lady No-Kids gleefully continue. Pondering life, love and nonsense, Love & Vermin is a trove of sly wisdom and laughter.
