Reviews

undefined "Painfully funny" -Esquire.com "The jokes are layered like a wedding cake of absurdity. . .The Handey-verse is a wacky relief from our dreary world of twerking singers and school shooters." -McSweeney's "[Handey] has waded into a genre that might seem unsuited to him, broken all the rules, and emerged with a radical reinvention of the form" -The Rumpus "It's hilarious. Think Ignatius C. Reilly from A Confederacy of Dunces if he believed himself to be Indiana Jones, but filtered through Handey's unique voice." -Flavorwire.com "Surreal and the whimsical, airtight quips with dark underpinnings that betray a fascination with language and a mastery of pacing." -A.V. Club "If laughter produces endorphins and endorphins promote good health, this book could cure disease" -The Courier-Journal "The best comedic novel in years. Handey is a master. Fans will be quoting lines from this book for a long time. " -Kirkus "A well-oiled laugh-machine. A prose cartoon...a book that glimmers like an oasis of funny in the desert of snark that surrounds us" -Paste Magazine "I don't remember Honolulu being remotely this disgusting." --Judd Apatow "This book is a joy. I laughed out loud on every page. Jack Handey is hilarious, brilliant, and original--a law unto himself." --Ian Frazier, author of Travels in Siberia "A clever, absurd and fantastical adventure that could only have sprung from the hilarious-slash-lunatic mind of Jack Handey." --Jimmy Fallon "I recently humiliated myself in the prestigious Pump Room restaurant by laughing out loud, to the point of tears, while reading The Stench of Honolulu. Jack Handey is the funniest writer in America. And his funny is a very particular, sublime, kind of funny-it builds and builds and is related to his supreme control of language. It is witty, minimal, subversive and also strangely sweet. Read this book, and you will feel better, period." --George Saunders, New York Times bestselling author of Tenth of December, to the New York Post.
