Description: Hilarious, piercing, bittersweet essays that are deeply revealing. David Rakoff tries to be nasty, but he can't quite help noticing that these are actual human beings he's writing about. In his attempts not to pull any punches, the most damaging blows, more often than not land squarely on his own jaw - hilariously satirizing the writer, not the subject. And therein lie his genius and his burgeoning appeal. The wry and the heartfelt join in his prose to resurrect the most neglected of literary virtues: wit.
