The Hamster That Loved Puccini: The Seven Modern Sins of Christmas Round-robin Letters

Atlantic Books 2005  2005 
  Small 8vo hardcover 176pp index, b/w illus. very good+. / Very good+ d/w. Simon Hoggart is back with a new treasure trove of Christmas round robins. And this time they illustrate the seven deadly sins of their writers, including boastfulness (dazzlingly clever children who play the saxophone and ski for Britain); smugness (their job, their house, their holidays are all perfect); tiny-mindedness (do we really need to be told how to start a jigsaw by looking for the straight bits?); whimsy (letters written by pets or babies); and the dreaded over-sharing, in which every illness and operation is described in minute, unwanted detail.

Too Good to Be True: The Colossal Book of Urban Legends
Brunvand, Jan Harold
W. W. Norton & Company 2001  2001 
  Small 4to softcover 480pp, b/w illus. very good. From Publishers Weekly: If a story sounds too good to be true, well, then it's probably an urban legend. Brunvand, the nation's leading authority on these contemporary folktales, draws from five previous collections (The Choking Doberman, Curses! Broiled Again!, etc.), from letters to his syndicated columns and from newspapers around the country, in this truly colossal anthology of horrendous and hilarious stories that sound as if they're true and most of the tellers believe are true, but somehow can never be verified. These are stories told by a FOAF (a friend of a friend) or a neighbor of the radio dispatcher who knows the deputy who talked to the doctor who treated 18 slash victims at the local mall. Many are familiar talesAof the hook heard rasping against the car door handle, of alligators in the sewers of New York, of earwigs in ears and spiders in bouffant hairdosAthis last traced back to the 13th century.

These are stories that turn up in every region of the country, every walk of life, and that invariably involve laughing paramedics, a dead grandmother stashed on the luggage rack, a fantastically cheap price for a Porsche or an exorbitant one for a cookie recipe from Neiman MarcusAor is it Marshall Fields? In demonstrating how such stories spread, change and endure, and how certain kinds of stories attach themselves to certain franchises and products ("Kentucky Fried Rat" is an especially gruesome example), Brunvand has constructed not only an enterta

I’m Not Making This Up, You Know : An Autobiography of the Queen of Musical Parody
Russell, Anna
ISBN: 0826403646
Continuum Intl Pub Group November 1985  1985 
  8vo hardcover 246pp very good / very good d/w. From James McCourt - The New York Times Book Reviewn{This is} a book that too often turns its back on its audience to change its wig or fetch its props; one that fills up the required reading time with certain names, certain places and certain dates, but for all that worthy effortends up presenting a patter-song narration of its subject. . . . Something about the tone and the fundamental reluctance . . . to grapple with its matter, seriously, comedically, or both, calls that embarrassed stand-in on the dais to mind. I found myself wishing I could hear Anna Russell telling her story, on records. The story would most probably come across as plucky, even valiant--things I feel Anna Russell undoubtedly is. As adumbrated and edited here, she all too often sounds merely bewildered and embittered.nnFrom Sue Denholm - NotesnThe story of {Russell's} life reads, in many places, like her routines, with interesting asides, strange twists, and an abundance of fascinating details. . . . The book is filled with bits of trivia about the lives of famous and near-famous musicians and performers. . . . Some people might have wanted a more psychologically revealing autobiography, others a more thoroughly funny one. But this book is actually just right for its subject, for its reflects a truth that seems to have been hard-won, and one that formed the basis of Anna Russell's comic art.

I Remember Nothing - And other Reflections
Ephron, Nora
Black Swan 2011  2011 
  8vo. Softcover. 222pp. Very good. If there is any solace in growing older, it is that you will find yourself guffawing in hysterical recognition at the situations Nora Ephron describes, from the impossibility of trying to remember people's names at parties,to struggling with the new technology. You will find yourself rolling off the sofa snorting with laughter as she recalls with her signature clarity and wisdom everything she hasn't (yet) forgotten, including what it feels like to produce a flop - and you will swallow down a lump in your throat at the poignancy of her insights into the pain of losing friends, and the guilt of separation and divorce.

A story featuring the trials and tribulations of Nigel Molesworth at St Custards school. Using his own brand of outrageous spelling, it includes his advice on how to cope with "bulies, snekes, grown-ups and other chizzes". reviewer says >>> The third book in the 'Molesworth' sequence and everything is getting more offbeat and surreal. This book is supposedly a guide to life in the coming atomic age, but in fact it's a set of bizarre almost-random musings with a strong anti-authoritarian slant. The text is brilliant quasi-stream-of-consciousness stuff and the illustrations are technically brilliant and thematically perfect. Hilarious!  Very Good/Fair

The Chaser Annual 2009
The Chaser,
ISBN: 1921520809
Text Publishing, Melbourne, 2009. First Edition
 Softcover Softcover. Very Good Condition/. Illustrator: photographs. First Edition. Despite the demands of successful ventures in stage, screen and their own richly rewarding fantasy lives, the Chaser team have found time to put together a new Annual. As always, it will cause controversy. Critics will certainly wonder how grown men can continue to churn out offensive undergraduate claptrap at their age. But, as millions have discovered over the years, no one can really understand current events, politics, popular culture or indeed anything else without a Chaser Annual at hand to help them appreciate its inherent stupidity. The Chaser Annual is not just a good laugh and an essential aid to informed discourse. It's a fantastic way to pass the time during a difficult bowel movement, and makes a perfect gift for someone you don't know. The book is without damage. It still has its hymen, and the pictures of Kevin Rudd have not been defaced. Size: 4to 9¾" - 12" tall. [4], 108 pages. Please refer to accompanying picture (s). Illustrator: photographs.
