Fans of Michael Ian Black’s brand of acid-tongued comedy will certainly enjoy his latest collection of essays about aging, health, family, and the ever-pleasant topic of DEATH. But even non-fans, like myself, will laugh, wince, and occasionally tear up at Black’s honest, irreverent, and yet surprisingly sincere essays. I don’t know how he does it, but Black manages to write about his expanding (sort of) waistline, growing up with his mother’s “rage addict” partner Elaine, and the harrowing aftereffects of his mother’s cancer treatment with candor and pitch-perfect emotion. Another writer could easily lose control of such tonally different topics. But a stand-up comedy veteran to the end, Black has the confidence and skill to guide his audience down even the most unexpected paths.— From Lillian
