Steve Martin’s latest New York Times bestseller is a witty and tender tour de force.

Shopgirl revealed the novelist in Steve Martin—witty, tender, intelligent, and passionate about his craft. And with the successful publication of The Pleasure of My Company, his reputation as one of our most gifted writers has been confirmed. Readers are introduced to Daniel Pecan Cambridge, whose life is full and rich—but only within the confines of his Santa Monica apartment. Daniel’s pathological obsession with street curbs and gas station attendants wearing blue hats may prevent him from venturing into the world outside of his window, but not from pursuing romance in his own peculiar way.

Meticulously constructed, laugh-out-loud funny, and brilliantly inventive, Steve Martin’s chronicle of a modern-day neurotic yearning to break free is a novel thousands of readers have cherished.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by JJ Wilson | 2/17/2014

    " I happen to think Steve Martin is a genius. Or to put it into terms Sarah and Dalia would understand, "I'd knock him up". In this book, he writes about some sort of obsessive-compulsive savant, and to write about brilliance, you've got to have some in you. I always read Martin's little novellas when i'm being non-committal on the bookshelf and get in those modes when i can't finish a single book. His books are short, smart and funny. One more comment is that I feel like Steve Martin is notably over-sexualized for an older man, much like Roald Dahl. On the other hand, it could be merely an unconventional reminder than men over 60 are human too. even if they still think like 13 year olds.... "

    " Read this about 5 years ago. It was interesting and funny. "

    " Another strong book from Steve Martin. He should really spend more time writing novels with his gifts, but I guess he's financing his writing through acting! "

    " I enjoyed this book and getting to know the main character and the people he interacts with and how it ends for the main character. I would recommend this book. It short and an easy enjoyable read. Give it 20 pages though. "
