Zero gravity / Woody Allen ; foreword by Daphne Merkin.
"His first new collection of short humor in fifteen years is classic Woody Allen. Zero Gravity is the fifth collection of comic pieces by Woody Allen, a hilarious prose stylist whose enduring appeal readers have savored since his classics Getting Even, Without Feathers, Side Effects, and Mere Anarchy. This new work combines pieces that have appeared in The New Yorker along with eleven written exclusively for this book, each a comic inspiration. Whether he's writing about horses that paint, cars that think, the sex lives of celebrities, or how General Tso's Chicken got its name, he is always totally original, broad yet sophisticated, acutely observant, and most important, relentlessly funny. Along with titles like "Buffalo Wings, Woncha Come Out Tonight" and "When Your Hood Ornament Is Nietzsche," included in this collection is his poignant but very funny short story, "Growing Up in Manhattan." Daphne Merkin has written the foreword. Zero Gravity implies writing not to be taken seriously, but, as with any true humor, not all the laughs are weightless."-- Amazon.com.
