Publisher Comments:

“Penn Jillette is a twenty-first-century Lord of Misrule: big, boisterously anarchic, funny, Rabelaisian, impossible—and unique. There isnt—couldnt be—better not be—anybody like him.”—Richard Dawkins

 

Nobody has more fun than atheists. Dont believe it? Well, consider this: For nonbelievers, every day youre alive is a day to celebrate! And no one celebrates life like Penn Jillette, the larger, louder half of legendary magic duo Penn and Teller. Whether hes contemplating the possibility of life after death, deconstructing Christmas carols, or calling Donald Trumps bullsh*t, Jillettes spectacularly witty and sharply observant essays in Every Day is an Atheist Holiday! will entertain zealots and skeptics alike. And as ever, underneath his rollicking rants lie a deeply personal philosophy and generous spirit which find peace in the simple beauty of the every day. Every Day Is an Atheist Holiday! is a thoughtful—yet hysterical—affirmation of lifes magic from one of the most distinctly perceptive and provocative humorists writing today. Like Peter Boghossian's A Manual for Creating Atheists, Jillette's book not only shines with comedic witticism, it intructs and educates.
