Mass Humanities and Harvard Book Store welcome author, "Vanity Fair" editor, and former "The Atlantic" editor CULLEN MURPHY for a discussion of his latest book. For a period of about fifty years, right in the middle of the American Century, many of the nation's top comic-strip cartoonists, gag cartoonists, and magazine illustrators lived within a stone's throw of one another in the southwestern corner of Connecticut?a bit of Bohemia in the middle of those men in their gray flannel suits. Cullen Murphy's father, John Cullen Murphy, drew the wildly popular comic strips Prince Valiantand Big Ben Bolt and was at the heart of this artistic milieu.
