Description

“Damn, this book is good.”Jon Stewart

“A biting, darkly hilarious collection of personal essays that begs to be read aloud.”—Chicago Tribune


Emmy Award–winning writer Adam Resnick began his career at Late Night with David Letterman before honing his chops in movies and cable television, including HBO’s The Larry Sanders Show. While courageously admitting to being “euphorically antisocial,” Resnick plunges readers deep into his troubled psyche in this uproarious memoir-in-essays. Shaped by such touchstone events as a traumatic Easter egg hunt and overwrought by obsessions, he refuses to be burdened by chores like basic social obligation and personal growth, adhering to his own steadfast rule: “I refuse to do anything I don’t want to do.”

    Hilarious and endearing. It's a great quick read while traveling or commuting, though you'll be bummed when it ends and the people around you will think you're nuts when you're laughing so much.
  • Pretty good

    I could have read twenty more stories like these. Gorgeous phrasing of the distaste we all share for our fellow man.

    Having grown up in the Harrisburg area I identified closely with many of Adam's stories. Saw his interview on Dave on April 30 form my home in Costa Rica and bought the book immediately. A great read, straight through from beginning to end! Hope more are on the way.
