Overview

Culled from the pages of The New Yorker, Holiday, TV Guide, and Venture, the thirty-two stories that comprise Baby, It's Cold Inside span all of Perelman's 1960s work, and is his only collection from the latter half of that tumultuous decade. The master humorist's writing always lands, with inimitable precision, on an exposed nerve; these stories are no exception.

Editorial Reviews

Eudora Welty
What an achievement Mr. S.J. Perelman makes today, that out of our own sadness and outrage we are brought, in these little leaves, to laugh at ourselves once more.
New York Times Book Review
Library Journal
Perelman was undoubtedly one of the 20th century's greatest wits. As a regular contributor to The New Yorker and screenwriter for the Marx Brothers, his humor was legendary. Lyons Press here offers four major doses of Perelman spanning from 1950 to his final days. His essays and observations touch on numerous aspects of everyday life. Great fun.
