In Baking with Kafka, Tom Gauld asks the questions no one else dares ask about civilisation as we know it. - How do you get published during a skeleton apocalypse? - What was the secret of Kafka's lemon drizzle cake? - And what plot possibilities does the exploding e-cigarette offer modern mystery writers? A riotous collection of laugh-out-loud cartoons in his signature style, Baking with Kafka reaffirms Gauld's position as a first-rate cartoonist, creating work infused with a deep understanding of both literary and cartoon history.

MEDIA REVIEWS
A collection of brilliantly off-the-wall cartoons. Ever wondered what War and Peace clickbait looks like? Or Machiavelli's month planner? Gauld can help * * Daily Mail, Best Reads of 2017 * *
Tom Gauld might just be the Edward Gorey of our time, channelling his wry humour and macabre aesthetic through exquisite black-and-white illustrations -- MARIA POPOVA
Each single-page piece is a clever, funny, slightly bonkers riff on a literary theme . . . Sublime * * The Times * *
One of the best cartoonists around! * * BoingBoing * *
Praise for the works of Tom Gauld: Heartwarming * * Guardian * *
At once hilarious and achingly melancholy . . . A quietly essential read * * Wired * *
His economical art . . . is married to dry, incisive humor, making each strip a carefully composed marvel * * Publishers Weekly * *
The ironic takes on key moments in history and literature (Armstrong on the moon, Cathy and Heathcliff wandering the moor) will certainly elicit a few laughs * * Vogue * *
Gauld's deceptively simple panels and sparse, understated dialogue speak poetically . . . Gauld finds humour and hope - as well as coffee and doughnuts - in his portrait of a fading utopia * * Guardian * *
Precise and wryly hilarious * * NPR, Best Books of 2013 * *
