Picks and Pans Review: Feisty Virginia Woolf
by Maris Bishofs
Born in Latvia, Bishofs, 46, now lives in New York and creates extremely bizarre illustrations for such publications as the New York Times and the Atlantic Monthly. Virginia Woolf figures in many of the drawings in this extra-dry humorous collection; for example, "Virginia Woolf meets her namesakes at a gathering to discuss Virginia Woolf's books in Amherst, Mass. 1939," or a list of "My favorite writers." She doesn't show up in "Hemingway hand wrestling with Ronald Reagan in Madrid, Spain 1939," but then Boy George, Mahatma Gandhi and New York TV newswoman Michelle Marsh are there, so who needs Ginny anyway?
