From Dave Barry to Tom Perrotta, from New York magazine to Weekend Today, the word ubiquitously associated with Larry Doyle is “hilarious.”

Following the success of his popular novels Go, Mutants! and I Love You, Beth Cooper, Doyle returns with a collection of short works for fans who just want the satire, wit, merciless humor (and occasional glimmer of tenderness) straight, no chaser. Doyle has written on everything, from childhood to evil genius, pets to parenthood, Mark Twain to Twitter, and it’s all here, including favorites from the Shouts and Murmurs column in the New Yorker, classics from Esquire and National Lampoon, as well as more than a dozen pieces never before published.

    " I won this book as a first reads giveaway. This is a collection of short humor writing, gathered from over the years. It has short entries about haphazard ideas, like "how to communicate with your dog". Each entry is pretty quick which makes it even more fast-paced... an entertaining book :) "

    " Intermittently it's pretty funny, but taken as a whole, a third of the book rough I decided its time to stop. With so much to read, I couldn't see a point in continuing with this. "
