Description

Chairs. Neat people. Ugliness. War. Over six decades of intrepid reporting and elegant essays, Andy Rooney has proven a shrewd cultural analystunafraid to question the sometimes ridiculous, often surprising facts of our lives. Rooneys great gift is telling it straight, without a hint of sugar coating, but with more than a grain of truth and humor. His take on America? Its just amazing how long this country has been going to hell without ever having got there. On food? Theres more dependable mediocrity than there used to be. Andy Rooney: 60 Years of Wisdom and Wit brings together the best of more than a half-century of work (including long-out-of-print pieces from his early years) in an unforgettable celebration of one of Americas funniest men. Like Mark Twain, Finley Peter Dunne (Mister Dooley) and Will Rogers, Andy Rooney is a classic chronicler of America, a writer for the ages.show more

Review quote

Kirkus Reviews"Rooney has solid credentials as an old-fashioned liberal of an almost extinct type, one who dislikes hubbub and loudmouths but dislikes injustice even more."show more
