A Week in Culture: Zachary Kanin, Cartoonist
March 16, 2011 | by Zachary Kanin
A graduate student came to my house to film me making a sandwich for her documentary, which, as far as I can tell, is about cartoonists eating lunch.
While on a stroll in the park, three teenagers ran up behind me, threw me to the ground, and punched me repeatedly in the head. I threw them off and ran far enough away to call the police. I spent the next several days replaying the scene in my head.
On Wednesday I had a harmonica lesson and a personal-training session, but not at the same time.
Zachary Kanin is a cartoonist for The New Yorker and the author of The Short Book. His work is the only man-made object that can be seen from outer space. Check back tomorrow for his second installment.
