This is one of the most brilliant “picture” books I have read. Bursting with pithy satirical wit and commentary ” I Am The Elephant in the Room” is a must read. The art work is gorgeous.  Not only is Mr. Bender a brilliant writer and director but also a gifted artist . Just in case the name does not “ring a bell”  think “Lost”, “Game of Thrones” and  “The Soprano’s ” .

I met Jack and his wife actress and now Rabbi Laura Owens about 20 years ago when they were contemplating buying a home in Malibu. Brentwood won out but I kept in touch and followed their careers.  Facebook reunited us and I was very excited to attend Jack’s  book signing and art opening at the Main Street Gallery in Venice.
