Torrid Times by Peter Brookes
3 October 2023
Torrid Times is the terrifyingly funny new collection of cartoons by The Times’s master satirist, Peter Brookes.
Brookes, multiple winner of the British Press Awards Cartoonist of the Year, dissects contemporary political life like a mad surgeon in these, the finest of his opinion-page cartoons from The Times, each up to the minute and breathtaking in its bite and wit.
Torrid Times deftly sends up our troubled era, brilliantly describing the mess the world is in whilst mercilessly lampooning those who made it that way. Hilarious and beautifully crafted, these cartoons are, as always, the sumptuous evidence of a genius at work.
