Editorial Reviews

Deborah Mason
Mr. Blount's great accomplishment in this collection is the exquisite honing of his wiliest persona: professional cracker. ''Now, Where Were We?'' records with unparalleled deviltry the existential trials of a yokel stranger in a strange land.... These pieces are brilliantly loopy, reassuringly subversive, and they put Mr. Blount in serious contention for the title of America's most cherished humorist. I'm sure he doesn't put much stock in titles, and to be called America's most cherished anything probably makes his skin crawl. -- New York Times
