Your Unauthorized Guide to the Golden Age of National Lampoon Magazine

Thin Ice: Coming of Age In Canada


By Bruce McCall
Random House, 1997

Bruce McCall is one of my favorite NatLamp contributors. He wrote and illustrated his articles. Thin Ice is the story of his life before all this, being a kid in Canada, becoming a sports car nut, and becoming an illustrator at an advertising art studio that catered to the Detroit automotive industry. National Lampoon is barely mentioned, but this memoir gives a glimpse into the formative years of the mind that gave us the Bulgemobiles.
