Pulitzer Prize-winning author Joshua Cohen (The Netanyahus) reintroduces America's zaniest humourist to a new generation of readers. When asked about himself the writer Sidney Joseph Perelman once quipped, 'before they made him, they broke the mold.' Nowhere is S. J. Perelman's one-of-a-kind, madcap sensibility-his gift for wordplay, witticism, spoofery, and sheer nonsense-on better display than in his classic collection Crazy Like a Fox, here restored to print for the first time in decades. In a playful, loving tribute to the funny man, novelist Joshua Cohen-also an erudite wordsmith and punster-introduces Perelman's sui generis comic pieces to a new generation of readers, certain to fall in love with the writer whom The New York Times once noted for his ability 'to transform the common cliche or figure of speech into an exploding cigar.'

316. Crazy Like a Fox, by S. J. Perelman (read 23 Mar 1947) When I finished this book on Mar 23, 1947, I said: "Finished Crazy Like a Fox. Perelman is funny." ( )

Such is the outrageous genius of this that It is vain to call any particular work, or group of works, "The Best of . . ." It's a bit like sayinh which is your favourite child, or your most spectacular kiss, or your most memorable orgasm. I'll probably gave away my copy of this volume simply to share the love -- not that I don't have plenty more samples of his work in my more-or-less permanent collection. Included in this volume are "Is there an osteosynchrondroiticain in the house?", "Frou-frou,or Vertigo revisited", and the delirious "Scenario" with the memorably incomprehensible lines, "Greater love hath Onan", and "I am Yankel Patchouli, a solicitor. Here is my card and a report of my recent urinalysis." ( )
