Read full description of the books:
Whenever you hear someone talking about a riotous cartoon in the latest New Yorker, they are almost sure to be talking about one brawn by Bruce Eric Kaplan. Kaplan - or BEK, as he signs his strips - has drawn cartoons for the New Yorker since 1991. Now, the collection THIS IS A BAD TIME captures some of the best work from his 350-plus contributions to the magazine. Kaplan's cartoons cover a variety of topics including God, death, sex, books, movies and relationships, all in the most memorable manner. Whether he is poking fun at high society (two women drinking martinis, and one comments: 'I like his earlier work better, paticularly the ones I said I didn't like at the time') or commenting on our modern anxieties (a young girl asking her mother, 'So did the fair princess ever develop melanoma?') BEK's cartoons end up revealing much about the way we live and talk, while also making us laugh. THIS IS A BAD TIME is a marvellous collection of some of the last decade's most humorous, intelligent and socially conscious entertainment.

Read information about the authorBruce Eric Kaplan, known as BEK, is an American cartoonist whose single-panel cartoons frequently appear in The New Yorker. His cartoons are known for their signature simplistic style and often dark humor. Kaplan is also a screenwriter and has worked on Six Feet Under and on Seinfeld (funnily enough, one of his most well-known episodes is one where Elaine becomes increasingly frustrated over what she takes to be an utterly nonsensical cartoon in The New Yorker). He graduated from Wesleyan University where he studied with Professor Jeanine Basinger.
Kaplan joined the crew of Six Feet Under during the first season in 2001 as a supervising producer. He scripted two episodes of the first season – "The Foot" and "The New Person". He was promoted to co-executive producer for the second season in 2002 and wrote a further two episodes – "The Invisible Woman" and "The Secret". He remained a co-executive producer for the third season in 2003 and wrote a further episode entitled "The Trap". He was promoted to executive producer for the fourth season in 2004 and wrote another episode "The Dare". He served as executive producer during the fifth and final season and wrote his last episode "The Silence". Kaplan wrote seven episodes in total for the series.
He has authored and illustrated six adult titles for Simon & Schuster: the cult classic The Cat That Changed My Life; the collections, I Love You, I Hate You, I'm Hungry, No One You Know and This is a Bad Time; and Every Person on the Planet and Edmund and Rosemary Go to Hell, both featuring the wonderfully neurotic Brooklyn couple, Edmund & Rosemary. He lives in Los Angeles with his wife and two children.
