Winner of the 2009 Thurber Prize (Frazier's the only person to have won it twice). Which essays literally made me LOL and/or gasp at Frazier's cleverness? The classic title essay, "Th-Th-That's Not All, Folks," "Techno-Thriller," "The Cursing Mommy Cookbook," "Veni, Vidi, Vici, Etc.," "Warmer, Warmer," "Downpaging." Recommended for fans of McSweeney's-type humor, David Sedaris, etc--liberal-leaning, literature-informed wit.
