Bourdain on Pekar and Cleveland

July 13, 2010

Harvey Pekar, comic book writer and much much more, recently died. Anthony Bourdain has a rather lovely blog post about Pekar and Cleveland.

“His continuing compulsion to wonder what’s wrong with everybody else was both source of entertainment and the only position of conscience a man could take.”

Also be sure to check out Bourdain’s Cleveland episode of No Reservations that features Harvey Pekar and his friends rather heavily. It is one of my all-time faves.
