Get Well



Get Well is a collection of Michael Leunig’s work over the past four years – a time when, quite remarkably, all has not been well with the world.

Deceptively wise, heartbreakingly beautiful and just plain hilarious, Get Well is a robust selection from Michael Leunig’s work over the past four years – a time when, quite remarkably, all has not been well with the world.

More than ever Leunig shines a light on questions about sanity and madness, innocence and corruption, friendliness and unfriendliness, joy and despair, and the possibility of an overriding eternal wisdom and beauty. Simple verses, homemade aphorisms, sentimental yearnings, absurd jokes, funny faces and vaudevillian fiascos abound that all point to one question: what is becoming of the world, and our place in it?

Get Well is the book we all need right now – just the tonic for these strange times.
