Need a Laugh?


If the election hoopla is getting you down, maybe you need a distraction.  Humor is great medicine.  Calvin Trillin, author of Quite Enough of Calvin Trillin: Forty Years of Funny Stuff, just won the 2012 Thurber Prize for American Humor.  For a break from debates, ads, deficits, the 47 percent and more, here are some previous years’ winners you can sample as well.

Half Empty by David Rakoff (2011)

How I Became a Famous Novelist by Steve Hely (2010)

Lamentations of the Father by Ian Frazier (2009)

I Love You, Beth Cooper by Larry Doyle (2008)
