Overview

Fierce Pajamas: Selections of Humor from an Anthology of Humor Writing from the New Yorker by David Remnick, Faith Prince, Patrick Frederic, Chris Gannon

When Harold Ross founded The New Yorker in 1925, he described it as a "comic weekly." And although it has become much more than that, it has remained true in its heart to the founder's description, publishing virtually every accomplished practitioner of literary laughter of the modern era: James Thurber, S.J. Perelman, George W.S. Trow, Veronica Geng, Ian Frazier, Garrison Keillor, Woody Allen, Steve Martin, Susan Orlean, Calvin Trillin, Marshall Brickman, Frank Sullivan and Wendy Wasserstein. This collection will gather together, for the first time, many of these great writers' greatest work. It will include not only the straight parodies and spoofs for which The New Yorker has become the talk of many towns, it will also contain humorous full-blown short stories, hilarious landmark reviews, and reporting as funny as it is informative. A wonderful gift for others, or a delightful present for oneself, Fierce Pajamas will present the best examples of literary laughter in all its variations from a publication that for decades has defined America's meatiest and most sophisticated sense of humor.
