Description

The thirty-six undeniably hilarious stories that comprise The Rising Gouge, culled from such magazines as The New Yorker, Holiday, and Redbook, represent the writings of S. J. Perelman during the 1940s and 1950s, regarded by many critics and fans as the author's most productive and noteworthy period. Complete with travelogues, essays, satirical open letters, and two short one act plays, The Rising Gouge is a collection as varied as the mind that created it.
