9780061728952: Humor Me: An Anthology of Funny Contemporary Writing (Plus Some Great Old Stuff Too)

Selected and introduced by the incomparable Ian Frazier, Humor Me delivers a bumper crop of hilarity from the funniest writers at work today, with proceeds from its sales going to 826 National—the Dave Eggers-founded nonprofit tutoring, writing, and publishing organization with locations across the country. Featuring laugh-out-loud comic contributions from a host of American funnymen and women—including Steve Martin, Garrison Keillor, Veronica Geng, and David Sedaris—Humor Me is fun for all, a treasure trove of rare wit that every Jon Stewart fan and reader of The Onion will appreciate.
