Summary
An eclectic collection from Roy Blount Jr., master of American humor writing I'll tell you what kind of book I believe in: one that makes people say, at first sight, what the first person who ever saw a camel must have said: "What in the world is that?" And then, after a while, "Yet it seems to fit together some way." In this laugh-a-minute assortment of essays, travel writing, poems, and even the occasional crossword puzzle, Roy Blount Jr. covers sixty-four different subjects, all unified by his trademark humor. "Tan" is a personal essay about Blount's lifelong battle with-sometimes for and sometimes against-that elusive summer glow. "Wild Fish Ripped My Flesh" chronicles his misadventures navigating the Amazon River. And "Lit Demystified Quickly" is a tongue-in-cheek poem about larger-than-life literary figures such as James Joyce, William Faulkner, and Walt Whitman. Camels Are Easy, Comedy's Hardìs a classic compendium of the wisecracks and wisdom for which Blount is renowned
