“Actually humorous humor books have never been as rare as they are today. Rough Draft would be a pleasure at any time, but right now it's a fresh batch of brownies in a bread-and-water age.”
—Kurt Andersen, author of Turn of the Century and co-founder of SPY magazine

“Dear Modern Humorist, Thank you for asking me to write a blurb for your hilarious book, Rough Draft. When do you need it by?”
—Conan O’Brien

Glamour magazine
