Publisher Comments:

Comedian Lewis Black unleashes his trademark subversive wit while recounting his own life story in his andlt;Iandgt;New York Timesandlt;/Iandgt; bestselling memoir.andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;You've seen him on andlt;Iandgt;The Daily Show with Jon Stewartandlt;/Iandgt; offering up his trademark angry observational humor on everything from politics to pop culture. You've seen his energetic stand-up performances on HBO, Comedy Central, and in venues across the globe. Now, for the first time, Lewis Black translates his volcanic eruptions into book form in andlt;Iandgt;Nothing's Sacred,andlt;/Iandgt; a collection of rants against stupidity and authority, which oftentimes go hand in hand.andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt; With subversive wit and intellectual honesty, Lewis examines the events of his life that shaped his antiauthoritarian point of view and developed his comedic perspective. Growing up in 1950s suburbia when father knew best and there was a sitcom to prove it, he began to regard authority with a jaundiced eye at an early age. And as that sentiment grew stronger with each passing year, so did his ability to hone in on the absurd.andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt; True to form, he puts common sense above ideology and distills hilarious, biting commentary on all things politically and culturally relevant. "No one is safe from Lewis Black's comic missiles." (andlt;Iandgt;New York Timesandlt;/Iandgt;)andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt; andlt;Bandgt;You have been warned....andlt;/Bandgt;
