Schulz Son Slams New Bio Of Late Father
Editor & Publisher:
After one of "Peanuts" creator Charles M. Schulz's sons read an advance copy of the epic new biography of his late father, he quipped to author David Michaelis: "I guess we were all expecting vanilla, but got Rocky Road."
Actually, Michaelis told E&P last month, the Schulz family knew from his "Schulz and Peanuts" proposal and from his 1998 biography of artist N.C. Wyeth that he would take a warts-and-all approach. The result? A book that puts a dent in Schulz's public sainthood by chronicling his flaws in addition to the positives.
