Don't Worry, He Won't Get Far on Foot Film Tie In Summary

Don't Worry, He Won't Get Far on Foot Film Tie In by John Callahan

The outrageous and inspirational memoir of legendary cartoonist John Callahan, now a major motion picture directed by Gus Van Sant and starring Joaquin Phoenix, Jonah Hill, Rooney Mara and Jack Black.

'When people laugh like hell and then say, That's not funny, you can be pretty sure they're talking about John Callahan.'
P.J. O'Rourke

Is it possible to find humour-corrosive, taboo-shattering, laugh-till-you-cry humour in the story of a 38-year-old cartoonist who's both a quadriplegic and a recovering alcoholic? The answer is yes, if the cartoonist is John Callahan whose infamous work has graced the pages of Omni, Penthouse and The New Yorker.

John Callahan was a legend during his lifetime, and his untimely death in 2010 has done nothing to diminish the power of his life story. Callahan's uncensored account of his troubled-and sometimes impossible-life is also genuinely inspiring. Without self-pity or self-righteousness, his liberating book is both harrowing and hilarious. Featuring more than sixty of Callahan's cartoons, it's a compelling look at art, addiction, disability and fame.

About John Callahan
