"...the epitome of wit and quick and ready repartee"
Ian McMillan, The Yorkshire Post October 2016
The definitive collection of the great American humourist.
Now reissued in paperback with an introduction by Bill Bryson, this definitive collection brings together Sidney Joseph Perelman's comic writings, satires and parodies, from The Customer is Always Wrong and Boy Meets Gull to Is there an Osteosynchrondroitrician in the House? and The Pants Recaptured.
Those new to Perelman's work will find a feast of intelligent, unpredictable comedy, as sharp today as it was on its first publication; for his lifelong fans, this is a treat.
