Description

Comic essays from the author of Farrell Covington and the Limits of Style: “There’s no book wiser or half as funny as I Shudder.” —David Sedaris
 
I Shudder is a side-splittingly funny collection of essays from Paul Rudnick, one of America’s preeminent humorists—a playwright, screenwriter, novelist, and regular contributor to the New Yorker. The reviews say it all: 
 
“A hilarious, often touching hodgepodge of essays about his work and his life with his pleasingly demented family.” —People (4 stars)
 
“Uproariously self-deprecating essays about being gay and Jewish in suburban New Jersey and downtown Manhattan.” —The New York Times Book Review
 
“A likable and accomplished raconteur who never loses sight of his own absurdity.” —The Washington Post
 
“Smart, dishy, and very funny.” —Daily News
 
“An acerbic and entertaining memoir.” —Entertainment Weekly
 
I Shudder is filled with deeply funny musings and adventures that elevate Paul Rudnick to the highest level of American comedy writing. It should be noted that I would be at the highest level of American comedy writing if I had had Paul’s early advantages.” —Steve Martin
