Description

"This audio gathers together, for the first time, the funniest work of more than thirty New Yorker contributors. Pieces offer perspectives on the heights of fame, the depths of social embarrassment, and the ups and downs of love and sex. Such well-loved sketches as Thurber's 'The secret life of Walter Mitty' take their place alongside light-hearted essays on food, film, and flights of fancy that follow an apparently simple premise to the point of no return, and sometimes well beyond"--Container.

It is dusk in the Laurentians. I am in ski togs. I feel warm and safe, knowing that the most dangerous pitfall for skiers is color, knowing that although a touch of brilliance against the snow is effective, too much of it is the sure sign of the amateur.

An excellent compilation.
