On the Horizon: My Life With Charlie Brown

My Life with Charlie Brown included autobiographical essays, introductions, articles, reviews, and lectures by Charles Schulz.

Perhaps best known as the creator of Peanuts, Charles M. Schulz (1922–2000) was also a thoughtful and precise prose writer who knew how to explain his craft in clear and engaging ways. 

This book, edited by comics scholar M. Thomas Inge, will be available from UPM in April.

With the approval and cooperation of the Schulz family, Inge draws on the cartoonist’s entire archives, papers, and correspondence to allow Schulz full voice to speak his mind. The project includes his comics criticism, his introductions to Peanuts volumes, his essays about philanthropy, his commentary on Christianity, his newspaper articles about the creation of his characters, and more

This volume will reveal new dimensions of this legendary cartoonist and serve as the touchstone for Schulz’s thoughts and convictions and as a wide-ranging, unique autobiography in the absence of a traditional, extended memoir.
