Simon Rich is outrageously, lavishly gifted -- Caitlin Moran
How fabulously funny -- Lauren Laverne
Hilarious. Open this book anywhere, begin reading, and you will laugh -- Jon Stewart
The wittiest American humourist of his generation * Guardian *
This year's giggliest read * Observer magazine *
A remarkably funny writer, likely to make you laugh harder than any other ... there's no funnier writer working today * Shortlist *
Rich has a wonderful way of making a familiar situation strange and then presenting it in deceptively simple language, within a perfectly lucid, concise structure ... Genius ... He is a Thurber, even a Wodehouse, for today. Who could ask for more? You can give his books to people and just watch them laugh. Only after you've snorted through them yourself, though -- David Sexton * Evening Standard *
Simon Rich is very much laugh-out-loud funny. He can conjure authentic, from-the-abdomen laughter on almost every page. He stacks surrealism on top of slick satire on top of pure childish silliness in such a brilliant and condensed way, there are sometimes three laugh-out-loud moments within the same paragraph ... He is exactly the right kind of writer for the internet: funny, high-concept, accessible, short, sharable, a James Thurber for the Twitter age -- Matt Haig * Guardian *
Brilliant ... Slightly nerdy and very sharp -- William Leith * Evening Standard *
