Picks and Pans Review: Husbands & Wives
by Liza Donnelly and Michael Maslin
An entertainingly irreverent husband-and-wife cartoonist team who work mostly for The New Yorker, Donnelly and Maslin seem to have a less than idyllic view of marriage. Typical of their attitude is a panel showing a man and woman sitting on opposite ends of a sofa. Each is watching the news on a separate TV set. He is watching Rather; she is watching Brokaw. That tone informs this whole collection, though Donnelly and Maslin are commendably evenhanded: in their universe women are as churlish and unreasonable as men. (Ballantine, $8)
