Uno de los hitos de la comedia. Una historia de amenazas, cartas de odio, lucha libre y empoderamiento femenino.

El genial cómico Andy Kaufman decidió convertirse en el campeón de lucha libre femenina. Para animar a las mujeres a pelear con él, las provocaba con comentarios machistas, retándolas y pidiendo que le escribieran por carta si estaban interesadas en pelear con él "y ser vencidas sin remedio". Ese libro recopila todas esas cartas, muchas irónicas, otras totalmente indignadas.

Finalmente, su gira por Estados Unidos, donde peleó con cientos de mujeres y fue reiteradamente vapuleado y vencido, se convirtió en un ejercicio colectivo de empoderamiento femenino y en un hito de la comedia.

“...Hilarious...You couldn't write better insults than these if you tried, and it's easy to understand why Kaufman just couldn't let them go.”—Pop Candy for USA Today

“It is not just the letters that help to make Dear Andy Kaufmana complete success. The grainy graphics and often hilarious images ultimately tie the entire book together, making it something heftier than a coffee table book but no less engaging to thumb through.”—LAist

The legendary eccentric performer Andy Kaufman provoked a national outrage in 1977 by taunting the women of America and challenging them to wrestle him live on television. Taking on an aggressive and ridiculous personality based upon the characters invented by professional wrestlers, he offered a $1,000 reward to any woman who could pin him. Thousands of fired-up females (and a few males) responded to the call, and Kaufman received a torrent of impassioned challenges, hate mail, and love letters from would-be wrestling contenders. These fascinating and sometimes bizarre handwritten letters, photographs, and illustrations from would-be contenders are here assembled into an astonishing Rorschach of the late ‘70s liberated female psyche.
