Reviews

"This slick volume is full of compulsively readable and downright perverted nuggets."--"Time Out Chicago""[A] hilarious treat."--"Los Angeles Times""A deeply thoughtful compendium of literary pieces.... Leave it to the folks at McSweeney's to tap Apatow's Updike-ian erudition. It speaks remarkably well of him that he esteems the delicate humor of such intricately crafted pieces as Raymond Carver's 'Elephant' and Flannery O'Connor's 'Good Country People.' It speaks even better of him that the profits from his book -- which mixes these subtle humor pieces with more flat-out funny stuff from Philip Roth, David Sedaris, Steve Martin, Nora Ephron and Jonathan Ames, among many others -- go to 826 National, the organization committed to promoting creative writing among students age 6 to 18."--John McAlley, "NPR"
