One More Thing
One More Thing: Stories and Other Stories by B.J. Novak, 4/5
A great sense of comedic timing, a keen eye for observation and a healthy appreciation for the potential absurdity of the ordinary combine to make this collection of short stories, poems and miscellanea an entertaining and thought-provoking (but mostly entertaining) experience. My favourite story was probably “The Man Who Invented the Calendar” though “The Girl Who Gave Great Advice” was also hilarious. If Novak writes more, I will definitely read more.
[Why I read it: Book Guy Reviews’ enthusiastic write-up of this book was convincing.]
