Brian Jay Jones' towering new tome, Jim Henson: The Biography, released this past week. It offers the first and most comprehensive portrait of a man who is one of the most important figures in popular culture of the latter part of the 20th century. While reading the book (which despite its length, is brisk and detailed with virtually no fat or pretentious armchair analysis) there’s no escaping the comparison of Jim to Walt Disney, who might claim the same title for roughly the first half of the century.
