Some brief overview of book

Finalist for the Thurber Prize for American Humor "One of the funniest writers in America." Thats what The New Yorkers Andy Borowitz calls Jenny Allenand with good reason. In her debut essay collection, the longtime humorist and performer declares no subject too sacred, no boundary impassable. With her eagle eye for the absurd and hilarious, Allen reports from the potholes midway through lifes journey.

One moment shes flirting shamelesslyand unsuccessfullywith a younger man at a wedding; the next shes stumbling upon X-rated images on her daughters computer. She ponders the connection between her ex-husbands questions about the location of their silverware, and the divorce that came a year later. While undergoing chemotherapy, she experiments with being a "wig person." And she considers those perplexing questions that we never pause to ask Why do people say "It is what it is"?

Whats the point of fat-free half-and-half ? And havent we heard enough about memes? Jenny Allens musings range fluidly from the personal to the philosophical.

She writes with the familiarity of someone telling a dinner party anecdote, forgoing decorum for candor and comedy. To read Would Everybody Please Stop? is to experience life with imaginative and incisive humor.
