Created in Darkness by Troubled Americans: The Best of McSweeney’s Humor Category

Author : Various


A hilarious collection from McSweeney’s that “achieves the sensation of being hit by a hip, humorous train…. Breaks mold after mold in hilarious fashion” ( The New York Times ).

Now more than ever, Americans are troubled by questions. As sweaty modernity thrusts itself upon us, the veil of ignorance that cloaked our nation hangs in tatters, tattered tatters. Our “funny bones” are neither fun nor bony. Glum is the new giddy, and the old giddy wasn’t too giddy to begin with.
What can be done to stop this relentless march of drabbery? Nothing. But perhaps this book can be used to dull the pain. Included
