In Far Out, we meet an artist who creates boundary-exploring erotica and provocative political art, while penning best-selling children’s literature with mischievous wit and childlike innocence. He arrives on American shores eager for economic opportunities and new creative freedom, and he leaves having offended even the tolerant and open-minded as he pushes past the limits of propriety. He becomes a broadly appealing artist and Madison Avenue success story, a singular artist steeped in piquant ideas and thoughts, yet even his most recognized books are now out of print. While Ungerer is by no means a victim, he is an early casualty of the so-called cultural wars—a man who didn’t fit neatly into the left or the right, and who managed to offend and fascinate people of all political and cultural persuasions. Once the most famous children’s book author in America, Tomi Ungerer became persona non grata in this country, exiled to the professional abyss, never to be heard from again.
