The sad, wonderful, complicated life of Charles M. Schulz

"Who was the real Charles M. Schulz? Was he the man who suffered anxiety attacks, remembered slights for decades and put every ounce of existential angst into his comic strip, 'Peanuts'? Was he the grandfatherly cartoonist hailed as a towering figure in American popular culture, who revolutionized the comic strip and created not only a multimillion-dollar business, but a daily touchstone for fans worldwide? Or was he between the lines in 'Peanuts' itself, in the melancholy of Charlie Brown, the exuberance of Snoopy, the intellectualism of Linus, the directness of Lucy and the bafflement of Peppermint Patty?"
