Editorial cartoonist Ted Rall talks about his new graphic novel

Ted Rall’s new book, “After We Kill You, We Will Welcome You Back As Honored Guests: Unembedded in Afghanistan,” is an unflinching account of America’s longest war by a groundbreaking graphic journalist. Rall, a syndicated editorial cartoonist, spent months filing daily reports via satellite, and now his talents as a reporter and award-winning graphic novelist shine in his account of life in contemporary Afghanistan, a mix of travelogue, photography and comics.

Rall shares his book at 7 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 22, at Village Books, 1200 11th St.

Rall is the author and illustrator of many graphic novels and books of political criticism and travel writing, including “The Year of Loving Dangerously,” “Silk Road to Ruin: Is Central Asia the New Middle East?” and “The Book of Obama: How We Went from Hope and Change to the Age of Revolt.” He lives in East Hampton, NY.
