Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:
An uproarious and lacerating meditation on life--and death--by a celebrated new voice on the comedy scene. Leary employs his ferocious wit and sharp intellect to confront society and its ills and forces us to face the issues we are all most afraid of. "Absolutely brilliant . . . the real cutting edge of American comedy."--The Boston Globe.

Review:
Leary manages to be harsh and hilarious about foibles and situations, stupidity and hypocrisy. No Cure for Cancer is the written version of a series of monologues he wrote while in the United Kingdom. Perhaps the most memorable aspects of the book are the speculation about a story drawn from a supermarket checkout newspaper about a man who lost his penis in an industrial accident; Leary's childhood experience of being shot in the head by his brother with an arrow; and his rants about drugs, the psychoses of New York, and the kind of childhood no one would willingly claim is normal for America, but probably (and frighteningly) is!
