Last summer, Christian Monggaard, film critic at the Danish newspaper Information and comics enthusiast, interviewed Robert Crumb twice in connection with the literary festival Louisiana Literature (see more here). With the blessings of Crumb, he has now converted these interviews into a small and beautifully-designed self-published book, Robert Crumb: I Can’t Do Pretty, to which he has added a personal appreciation of the artist that doubles as an introduction to Crumb’s career. He also asked yours truly to provide a foreword, which ended up as an essay about Crumb’s simultaneously transgressive and wholesome, self-analytical and empathetic work. Do check it out!
