"In these complex and violent times, how anxiously we try to lighten up," clinging to a good laugh as the one simple thing that doesn't mean anything but feeling good. But it is by looking the joker straight in the eye that Brottman is able to uncover a more believably complex sense of our very human relationship with humor. She treads a sometimes hilarious but always serious line between objective and subjective, personal and sociocultural, caustic and considerate. Read on: Brottman is not asking you to check your sense of humor at the door. You will laugh reading this book - even as you gain a healthier suspicion of why you are laughing, indeed, of why you ever laugh."
