Hometown Humor, U. S. A.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
The authors of Laughter in Appalachia (August House, 1987) and Curing the Cross-Eyed Mule (August House, 1989) have compiled another collection of amusing jokes and anecdotes. Although this new book attempts to go beyond a regional emphasis (the first two volumes focused on the rich oral tradition of Appalachia) by reflecting the ``humor of rural and small-town America,'' it likewise draws heavily on the abundant treasury of Southern humor. Nevertheless, foolish husbands, numbskull farmers, and tricky politicians are just some of the comical characters most every reader will recognize and enjoy. Two enlightening essays on the healing power of laughter complete the volume. For humor collections.-- Eloise R. Hitchcock, Tennessee Technological Univ. Lib., Cookeville
