This is another surreal joke/sketch-filled tome that will doubtless please his ever-growing fan base * Huffington Post Books of 2013 * [Praise for Demetri Martin's This Is A Book]: Top drawer one-liners and a refined sense of the absurd * Guardian * Highly inventive ... Martin is a genius * Telegraph * Ranges from the straightforwardly daft to rather beautiful tales ... like the best of Woody Allen's short fiction * Guardian * Superior ... charming * Times * A mix of the inspired and the absurd * Irish Times * The reader who fancies this brand of wry absurdism and playful labeling will be absolutely entertained from The Front to The Back. This is a Guarantee * Washington Post * One of the most acclaimed and beloved comedians in the US -- Davin O'Dwyer * Irish Times *show more
