An eclectic collection from Roy Blount Jr., master of American humor writingI&’ll tell you what kind of book I believe in: one that makes people say, at first sight, what the first person who ever saw a camel must have… said: &“What in the world is that?&” And then, after a while, &“Yet it seems to fit together some way.&”In this laugh-a-minute assortment of essays, travel writing, poems, and even the occasional crossword puzzle, Roy Blount Jr. covers sixty-four different subjects, all unified by his trademark humor. &“Tan&” is a personal essay about Blount&’s lifelong battle with—sometimes for and sometimes against—that elusive summer glow. &“Wild Fish Ripped My Flesh&” chronicles his misadventures navigating the Amazon River. And &“Lit Demystified Quickly&” is a tongue-in-cheek poem about larger-than-life literary figures such as James Joyce, William Faulkner, and Walt Whitman.Camels Are Easy, Comedy&’s Hard is a classic compendium of the wisecracks and wisdom for which Blount is renowned.
