Without Feathers Woody Allen
So! In a completely different vein, please consider taking Woody Allen's classic book of humorous essays out with you to the beach this summer. Or read it in your bathtub. Either way! Read it because you'll get to read "The Whore of Mensa" in which Allen's voice assumes a bit of a Dashiell Hammett flair. Each essay is absurd and clever and discrete. It's a great book to pick up and put down and then pick up again later, after your third gin and tonic of the afternoon. As dark and morbid as I usually like my summers to be, it's also important to laugh, I guess. This book will help you laugh.
