BF AUTOBIOGRAPHY

This has got to be the funniest book in the world. BF fan or not, it is simply too funny. Graham Roumieu illustrator and author really finds a voice so compelling and consistant you begin to forget Bigfoot is a undiscovered hominid, instead believing him to be an everyday man, a 600-800lb hairy everyday man who hates Chewbacca.

Heres a few excerpts. This first one is titled

Stop, Smell Rose
Where You go, Man on Road?
Why You Run, When me want talk?
You manners bad, so me learn you good
Tear off legs
So no more run. :)


Another Excerpt...

"Me used to believe in good, now no more. World go sh**...just like Bigfoot screenwriting career"


Roumieu, whose illustrations have appeared in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and The Progressive, reveals the hairy hominids's brave struggles with eating disorders, casual cannibalism, and philosophical quandaries ("Me once believe in good. Now, no. World go shit, like Bigfoot screenwriting career."). In a full-color graphic novel, Roumieu offers a portrait of the artist as a young ape that will leave the reader howling with laughter.

Review:

"Brilliantly funny." San Francisco Chronicle

If you decide to get the book, get it at Powell's the best dern bookstore in the world.

  1. Wow, what a great find. Graham Roumieu's work has always been a lot of fun to view and now he takes on one of my favorite subjects. I love it. Also, Chewbacca and Bigfoot....I never ever thought of the resemblance, we may just have to swing over to Powell's on Friday after lunch.
