Swaab is one of the most dangerous cartoonists in America. Astoundingly depraved and outrageously hilarious, his strip "Rehabilitating Mr. Wiggles" turns family values on its head. Nothing this wrong should make you laugh this hard! Adult.

Like Jonathan Evison's recent The Revised Fundamentals of Caregiving, this is a moving but not treacly story of a caregiver who forms a bond with a wheelchair-bound charge. Having taken a job as caretaker for Will Traynor -- once a highly successful, risk-seeking executive, now a prickly, closed-off quadriplegic in constant pain -- hardworking Louisa Clark eventually figures out that he's merely marking time, as a favor to his parents, before committing suicide. Determined to save him, she fills his life with as many adventures as she can, changing her own circumscribed life in the process. Admittedly an odd couple, they are incredibly real characters who star in a "lovely novel, both nontraditional and enthralling" (Publishers Weekly).
