"The Man is vintage Briggs. It is the story of an exxplosive encounter between a man (and who or what is he?) and a boy. The boy is at first deeply bewildered - the man is so tiny ("I am not tiny! I am the size I am"), so demanding ("Now... get me a sock... no pongy old socks, thank you very much"), and so utterly infuriating! But as the days go by much begins to emerge about both the man and the boy. Their conversation takes on a deeper meaning, and the reader, almost an eavesdropper, is drawn into the dialogue to share the emotions, sometimes painfully. This wonderfully funny, touching and provocative book breaks new ground in its treatment of the relationship between word and image. It is a book which persuades you not only to look at the page but to look inside yourself."
