Russell Baker is not only a very funny wirter, but a writer who recognizes and appreciates the humor in others. He has put together an indispensable collection of the best and funniest writing of our time. Baker shows us that humor is funny when it sneaks up on you and takes you by surprise. He has peppered his book with the best of his generation, from Robert Benchley and Langston Hughes, to Molly Ivins, Fran Lebowitz, Larry King, and Art Buchwald. There are plenty of classic humorists who have somehow withstood the test of time, delighting people in every generation with their unique angle of vision.

Also included are Mark Twain, Ambrose Bierce, Ring Lardner, Benjamin Franklin, Abraham Lincoln, and O. Henry, as well as Erma Bombeck, Nora Ephron, Fanny Flagg, P.J. O'Rourke, Mike Royko, and Tom Wolfe.
