    This original recording - his first - features Trillin at his most uproarious, reading from his own articles and books. Wonderfully funny and full of surprises, this is a thoroughly satisfying, eminently entertaining, and beautifully crafted collection.

    Debbie says: "Funny and well written"
    "Wonderful, warm, wry gem."
    Overall

    Nothing like an author who can laugh at himself,express such affection for his his wife and kids, and amusement at world at large.
    This charming collection will catch you off guard and have you laughing unexpectedly.

  • The Truth About Cruise Ships: A Cruise Ship Officer Survives the Work, Adventure, Alcohol, and Sex of Ship Life

    Story

    A finalist in the Global eBook Awards, this is a behind-the-scenes look at cruise ships in a way that's never been done before. Some of the stories are shocking, some are enlightening, but most are just laugh-out-loud entertaining. Jay Herring was an American senior officer and one of the few who had physical access to the entire ship. Interviewed on TV by ABC, radio by NPR, and in print by USA Today, The Huffington Post, and Frommers, he worked with every department and every senior officer.

    Lisa says: "I should have listened to the reviews"
    "Juvenile."

    Story

    I don't mind that I wasted a credit, if only I could get my time back.
    Poorly written, poorly read. More about his conquests than the cruises.
    A kiss and tell, where you get the feeling they did not care for his kissing, and I could have done without the telling.

    Story
    (191)

    This sweet and funny tale of a preppy editor buying a Brooklyn deli with his Korean in-laws is about family, culture clash, and the quest for authentic experiences. It starts with a gift. When Ben Ryder Howe’s wife, the daughter of Korean immigrants, decides to repay her parents’ self-sacrifice by buying them a store, Howe, an editor at the rarefied Paris Review, agrees to go along.

    lesley says: "Absolutely delightful!"
    "Good story, horrible narration."

    Story

    Entertaining story but ruined by an annoying narrator who often "over acts".
    Korean characters sound Pakistani.
