Humor Me: An Anthology of Funny Contemporary Writing (Plus Some Great Old Stuff Too)

An Anthology of Funny Contemporary Writing (Plus Some Great Old Stuff Too)

Author: Ian Frazier  

Paperback

"Humor Me" is a literary cavalcade of contemporary American funnymen—and funnywomen—of the page. Selected by the renowned humor-ist Ian Frazier and featuring more than fifty pieces of the greatest comic writing of our time, the book includes such masters of the form as Roy Blount, Jr., Bruce Jay Friedman, Veronica Geng, Jack Handey, Garrison Keillor, Steve Martin, and Calvin Trillin, as well as work by newer comic stars like Andy Borowitz, Larry Doyle, Simon Rich, George Saunders, and David Sedaris.

The pieces were published in the past thirty years in such popular magazines as "The New Yorker," "McSweeney's," "The Atlantic," "National Lampoon," and "Outside." But the book also includes a handful of older comic masterpieces that nobody in need of a laugh should ever be without, among them classics by Bret Harte, Elizabeth Bishop, Donald Barthelme, and Mark Twain.
