THE BEST OF S. J. PERELMAN. (var., this ed. 1947). S. J. Perelman. ***.
This is a comprehensive collection of the many articles written by Perelman that appeared – usually – in The New Yorker magazine. They are all of a kind, but each features Perelman’s adept use of satire and irony to induce humor. Perelman was a prolific writer. Aside from these regular features for the magazine, he jumped into the worlds of fiction, drama, and film. He was the recipient of an Oscar for his contributions to the script of “Around the World in thirty Days.” The short pieces in this collection, however, represent Perelman at his purest. He was a herald of the absurd and a grand master of the groaning pun. His sources usually included newspaper articles and the copy he found in advertisements. This is no longer ‘smack your thighs’ humor, but you will occasionally find a smile on your face. If you haven’t read any of Perelman’s works, this would be a good place to start.
