You Might Be From Minnesota If...
You Might Be From Minnesota If... is a delightful, illustrated romp through the State of Minnesota. From one of the most celebrated cartoonists in the US, Kirk Anderson delivers his unique take on America's most unique state, tickling the funny bone on every page. As Anderson proves, Minnesota is proud of who it is and likes nothing better than a good laugh.
"Lucky me! I get to write a blurb for a book by one of my favourite cartoonists ever, Kirk Anderson! Minnesotans have been enjoying Kirk's clever satire and lively art for decades, and now he's sharing his unique insights into everything that makes this place special ... the good, the bad, and the just plain wacky. You betcha you might be from Minnesota if you have this hilarious book on your living room coffee table!"
— Steve Sack, Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist, Minnesota Star Tribune
"Minnesota and its people are far more diverse and fascinating than Garrison Keillor's Lake Wobegon may have led you to believe. And there are few who present that in funnier fashion than Kirk Anderson. Anderson captures the culture in all of its contradictions, comforts and absurdities, hilariously portraying what makes life in Minnesota so unique... and uniquely rewarding."
— Rob Hubbard, arts critic, St. Paul Pioneer Press
