He vividly remembers these transformative years operating less than the mythical Will Eisner, and later, after he was once drafted into the military, his evolution from “smart-ass child into an enraged satirist.” Backing into Forward additionally strains Feiffer's love lifestyles, from a doomed hitchhiking journey to reclaim his high-school sweetheart to wasting his virginity in Greenwich Village, and his street to marriage and fatherhood.

 At the heart of this trip is Feiffer's prolific creativity. In staggering aspect, he recounts the delivery of his subversive image novella Munro, his entrée into New York's literary salons, collaborations with movie greats Mike Nichols, Robert Altman, and Jack Nicholson, and different significant turning issues. Brimming with wry punch traces, slices of Americana, and pithy social observation, Backing into Forward charts Feiffer's upward thrust as an not likely and incisive provocateur through the conformist fifties and the Vietnam and Civil Rights sixties and seventies.
