    Murphy, editor at large at Vanity Fair and the author of books including God’s Jury, grew up in the middle of a thriving community of illustrators and cartoonists in southwestern Connecticut. His father, John Cullen Murphy (1919-2004), who had been a student of Norman Rockwell’s, drew the popular comic strips Prince Valiant and Big Ben Bolt. Their neighbors were the artists responsible for classic comics ranging from Beetle Bailey to Hi and Lois to Family Circus. Murphy’s memoir pays tribute to these many creative individuals and warmly evokes the spirit of a bygone era.
