Seriously Funny Writing from America's Most Trusted Humor Anthology

Perfect for commuter train rides, rush-hour gridlock, Pilates work-outs, or any time when levity might add to the very quality of life. With inimitable contributions by Merrill Markoe, Dave Barry, Garry Trudeau and Bruce McCall, you have a triumphant salute to one of America's greatest assets: its sense of humor.

A salvo of hilarity from that loose canon of American humor that Mirth of a Nation editor Michael J. Rosen has culled from some 1200 pages of brilliantly original works by our best contemporary humorists. This action-packed compilation of highlights (FYL, we have no intention of mentioning "the funnybone" and how these works are sure to tickle it) includes Bobbie Ann Mason's stint at the La Bamba hotline, David Rakoff's insights on families, Andy Borowitz's memoir of Emily Dickinson (basically, she was a drunken jerk), and Michael Feldman's helpful (re)locating of the Midwest.

TONY ROBERTS is famed for his appearances in numerous films (many by Woody Allen), and his starring roles on Broadway in Arsenic and Old Lace, Promises, Promises, and The Allergists Wife.

SUSIE ESSMAN is a popular comedienne who has appeared on HBO specials, in the film Keeping the Faith and as a regular on Curb Your Enthusiasm.

MICHAEL J. ROSEN is the author and editor of a dizzying range of notable books for both adults and children, ranging from Midnight Snacks: 150 Easy and Enticing Alternatives to Standing by the Freezer Eating Ice Cream From the Carton to 101 Damnations: The Humorists'Tour of Personal Hells.
