Dwight Garner…low-key but preternaturally excellent…[Lander's] books are painfully observant, and they take you places that "The Daily Show" and The Onion, those reliable dispensers of elite wit, mostly don't. They're among the prickliest guides through the American status system since Paul Fussell's Class (1983)…You’ll find Whiter Shades of Pale in that dimly understood and flimsy bookstore subdivision, the humor section. It belongs upfront, where the best new nonfiction walks point.
