A sharp new collection from “one of the funniest writers in America” — The Daily Beast
Simon Rich is the “hilarious” (Washington Post) humorist who draws comparisons to Douglas Adams (The New York Times Book Review), James Thurber, and P.G. Wodehouse (The Guardian). With Hits and Misses, he’s back with his funniest–and most personal–collection of stories to date.
Based on Rich’s real experiences in Hollywood, Hits and Misses chronicles the ups and downs of fame in all its absurdity. From a bitter tell-all by the horse Paul Revere rode to greatness to a gushing magazine profile of everyone’s favorite World War II dictator, these stories roam across time and space to skewer our obsession with fame and fortune–from the days of ancient Babylon to the age of TMZ.
