Description


Do you like dogs? Babies? Baby dogs? Have you ever eaten ice cream or had love troubles? Wish there were dirty parts in The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, then this is the book for you.

It’s all here: This impressively consecutive collection of funny writing by Larry Doyle, the winner of the 2008 Thurber Prize for American Humor, a former writer for The Simpsons, and the author of I Love You, Beth Cooper, brings together an astonishing range of subjects under the umbrella of hilarious—an umbrella that is your free gift if you order right now.

Too late. But you can still take home this enormously entertaining read, featuring writing from the New Yorker, Esquire, and National Lampoon, along with never-before-seen pieces only available in this exclusive offer. Here’s what other happy customers had to say:

“[Doyle] is, as his credits suggest, wickedly funny.” —New York Times Book Review

“If Earth ever needs an Interplanetary Humor Ambassador, Larry Doyle’s the guy.”—Washington Post

Praise for Deliriously Happy: and Other Bad Thoughts…


“Larry Doyle’s nervy, off-the-wall, often naughty, always hilarious essays will make you Deliriously Happy.”
-Vanity Fair

“Dark, funny, strange, funny, angst, funny. Sometimes we felt bad for laughing. But we did it anyway.”
-Huffington Post, 11 Books You Need to Know About

“Delightful — letter-perfect literature parodies, absurd tabloid-rag quizzes, and a slew of other unlikely stylistic landings stuck.”
-Flavorpill

“Doyle’s third book, Deliriously Happy...collects Doyle’s humorous essays from The New Yorker, National Lampoon, Esquire, and elsewhere. His scenarios often feature characters who are in fact deliriously—or delusionally—happy.”
-The Onion A.V. Club

“A dizzyingly diverse and consistently hilarious body of short humor pieces originally published in a variety of publications, making a case for the former Simpsons scribe as one of the premier practitioners of the form....An unpredictable, unfailingly intelligent demonstration of a unique wit given free reign.”
-Kirkus

“No matter the subject, Doyle can be trenchant, funny, esoteric, and unpredictable.”
-Publishers Weekly
