And — promise! — no "Friends."

Too Soon? gathers Friedman's best, most strident and scathing work from some of the most popular publications including Time, Newsweek, The New Yorker, The New York Times, Rolling Stone, Entertainment Weekly, The New Republic, The Weekly Standard, Blab! and more — yes, even Field & Stream.

Too Soon? is naturally replete with liver spots, wrinkles, burst capillaries, blood, sweat and tears. No one is spared, no matter which side of the aisle he or she inhabits.

Too Soon? is in fact not TOO SOON — it's about time.

Friedman’s comic strips and illustrations over the last 30 years have been collected into five anthologies, most recently, Too Soon? (2010) and The Fun Never Stops (2007). His two books of portraiture, Old Jewish Comedians and More Old Jewish Comedians, were both met with critical acclaim.

Friedman launches his new book, “Too Soon?” at Desert Island, 540 Metropolitan Ave., Brooklyn, NY on Friday, Oct. 8th, 7-9PM,
