From Publishers Weekly:

Winner of an Emmy as a writer for David Letterman's TV show, Cohen is also known for laser-sharp pieces appearing in the New Yorker , the Nation , Harper's. This is a collection of previously published features which au courantital unnec.-in web. culture mavens, especially those tuned in to Cohen's "subversive" views, should appreciate. Inevitably, though, time has blunted the edge on some selections: burlesques of Brezhnev, Nixon and N.Y.'s Mayor Koch, for example, are dated. Most of the entries, however, remain richly entertaining. Cohen's nimble wit targets glib counselors on the electronic medium; a sexy teenaged would-be model ("I study Dan Rather; he smolders"); a man escaping humdrum ways by living in trees; runaway housewives pursued by a "mom squad" et al. These outlandish types come alive via the pen of this talented satirist.
