One More Thing

one more thing stories and other stories bj novakOne 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.]
