Another Roadside Attraction – Humor by Tom Robbins – $1.99 0 comments
As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases. Read the full disclosure here.
 

What if the Second Coming didn’t quite come off as advertised? What if “the Corpse” on display in that funky roadside zoo is really who they say it is—what does that portend for the future of western civilization? And what if a young clairvoyant named Amanda reestablishes the flea circus as popular entertainment and fertility worship as the principal religious form of our high-tech age?
Another Roadside Attraction answers those questions and a lot more. It tells us, for example, what the sixties were truly all about, not by reporting on the psychedelic decade but by recreating it, from the inside out.
In the process, this stunningly original seriocomic thriller is fully capable of simultaneously eating a literary hot dog and eroding the borders of the mind. Buy this humorous novel today for only $1.99.

Dude, Where’s My Country? – Humor by Michael Moore – $1.99 0 comments

In case anyone in Washington hasn’t noticed, Americans are fed up with the status quo. In this, the first shot fired over the bow of the 2004 Presidential election, Michael Moore aims to unseat the man who slithered into the White House on tracks built by the bloody hands of Enron and greased with the oil of his daddy.
As if an unelected, semi-literate president weren’t problem enough, America’s Democrats have managed to take the liberty out of “liberal,” signing on with the G.O.P. for dirty corporate money and the ill-gotten gains of globalization. The “left” is just as satisfied as the right to stand idly by as the chasm between the haves and the have-nots grows wider and wider.
Thank god for Michael Moore because DUDE, WHERE’S MY COUNTRY tells us precisely what went wrong, and, more importantly, how to fix things. In a voice that is fearless, funny, and furious, Moore takes readers to the edge of righteous laughter and divine revenge.

It’s Not Easy Bein’ Me – A Lifetime of No Respect but Plenty of Sex and Drugs – Rodney Dangerfield – $1.99 0 comments
As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases. Read the full disclosure here.
 

“When I was a kid,” writes Rodney Dangerfield, “I worked tough places in show business––places like Fonzo’s Knuckle Room. Or Aldo’s, formerly Vito’s, formerly Nunzio’s. That was a tough joint. I looked at the menu. They had broken leg of lamb.” For once, one of America’s most beloved comic icons isn’t kidding.
Dangerfield’s personal story is also a rollicking show business tale, full of marquee name–droppings and good stories about same. Defying the old saws about the fleeting nature of fame and the dearth of second acts in American life, Dangerfield transformed himself from a debt–ridden aluminium–siding salesman named Jack Roy to a multimedia superstar. His catchphrase – “I get no respect” – has entered the lexicon, and he remains a visible cultural presence and perennial talk–show guest.
Dangerfield’s hilarious and inspiring musings should thrill comedy fans and pop–culture watchers, and his second–act comeback will strike a chord with readers of all stripes. Maybe he’ll even get some respect. Buy it today for only $1.99.
