July 25, 1993|CHARLES SOLOMON

QUALITY TIME ON HIGHWAY 1 by Garry Trudeau (Andrews & McMeel: $7.95; 95 pp., paperback original). In the latest "Doonesbury" anthology, Trudeau uses the misadventures of his continuing characters as a vehicle for some of thenation's sharpest political satire. Lacey Davenport and Joan Caucus hear the unreported testimony of Clarence Thomas' former colleague, Angela Wright; Mark Slackmeyer tries to cover Ross Perot's erratic presidential campaign, Mr. Butts gets a visit from Joe Camel and the entire cast tries to meet the demands of a screening for "family values." No wonder George Bush recommended running "Doonesbury" "in the obituary section."
