From the Publisher:
A heavily researched portrait of the late creator of the "Peanuts" strip evaluates how his career was shaped by his midwestern working-class origins, family losses, and wartime experiences, offering insight into how familiar storylines closely reflected Schulz's private life. Reprint. 75,000 first printing.

Charles M. Schulz, the most widely syndicated and beloved cartoonist of all time, is also one of the least understood figures in American culture. Now, acclaimed biographer David Michaelis gives us the first full-length biography of the brilliant, unseen man behind Peanuts: at once a creation story, a portrait of a native genius, and a chronicle contrasting the private man with the central role he played in shaping the national imagination. Schulz and Peanuts is the definitive epic biography of an American icon and the unforgettable characters he created.

Annotation:
SCHULZ AND PEANUTS is a rich and fascinating look into the troubled life of Charles Schulz, a man who never lost his feelings of futility and frustration, even as his comic strip, Peanuts--a name that he loathed, created by a newspaper editor--became a beloved staple of American culture and a billion-dollar-a-year industry.

Praise

"There is much to enjoy and admire in SCHULZ AND PEANUTS." - John Updike 10/22/2007

"SCHULZ AND PEANUTS is...as meticulous in its evocation of a sensitive soul's temperament as any first-rate cartoon by Sparky himself." 10/26/2007
