"It is pure delight to see Buffalo through the eyes of the renowned political cartoonist Adam Zyglis. He knows the Western New York territory as only a homegrown boy can, and his talent — as this wonderful collection so clearly shows — is as obvious as it is captivating."

— Margaret Sullivan, former editor Buffalo News, Public Editor of the New York Times and columnist for the Washington Post


"Outside of chicken wings and Bills football, Adam Zyglis is the best face of Buffalo to the world. His drawings pulled in a Pulitzer Prize, but more importantly pulls on your heart, head and sense of humor every week. You Might Be From Buffalo If . . . is his playful homage to his hometown. Perfect for anyone who just wants a healthy dose of Buffalove."
