About Roy Blount Jr.
If there is one thing that Roy Blount Jr. prides himself on, his modesty aside, it is this: that he has done more different things than any other humorist-novelist-journalist-dramatist-lyricist-lecturer -reviewer-performer-versifier-cruciverbalist-sportswriter-anthologist-columnist-screenwriter-philologist of sorts he can think of. A single grandfather, he hails from Georgia and lives in Manhattan and western Massachusetts. Right after finishing this book, he turned fifty-six. His preference would have been to turn fifty-four, at most, but you can't go back except in a memoir.
