To mark the 70th anniversary of Schulz’s extraordinary creation, Library of America and editor Andrew Blauner present The Peanuts Papers: Writers and Cartoonists on Charlie Brown, Snoopy & the Gang, and the Meaning of Life, a first-of-its-kind tribute featuring a star-studded roster of thirty-three writers and artists. Here are Ann Patchett, Chuck Klosterman, Jonathan Lethem, Rick Moody, Elissa Schappell, Adam Gopnik, Ira Glass, George Saunders, and Maxine Hong Kingston, among many others, considering the personal truths revealed in Peanuts, its impact on their lives, the broader culture, and the lessons it can teach us about disappointment, melancholy, and those all-too-fleeting moments of warm-puppy happiness. Here too are graphic artists like Seth, Chris Ware, and Janice Shapiro sharing their deep admiration for the strip that inspired their own art. Featuring essays, memoirs, poems, and two original comic strips, The Peanuts Papers is the ultimate reader’s companion for every Peanuts fan.
