A two-time winner of the Thurber Prize for American Humor (for Coyote vs. Acme and Lamentations of the Father), Ian Frazier brings wit and insight on the most urgent issues of today. From musings on climate change (what did Al Gore say at his colloquium on the rising temperatures in Hell?) to the state of culture (what do you do when you're afflicted with Loss of Funding?) to the New York Mets, these 44 sly and creative essays are in a category of their own.
"When [Frazier] is critiquing artificial intelligence or advocating for mummies in what is otherwise a golden age of zombies, the theater of the absurd is taken to brave new worlds."—Kirkus Reviews
