Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Comedian Novello, a.k.a. Lazlo Toth, is still at it: writing zany letters to famous people-to Bill Cinton, the Pope, Dubya-and sometimes getting replies. To President Clinton in 1996, Toth proposes that the solution for the Balkans is a "new multi-religion inspired religion," with Wednesday as its sabbath. He asks Pope John Paul II for the Church's position on whether Earth has a "mirror planet" on the other side of the Sun, and if such a planet exists, whether the Pope on that planet is also infallible (this letter appears not to have received a response). Al Gore is one of Toth's favorite epistolary targets. After the 2000 election, Toth writes to cheer him up about losing the election: "Be Positive! Stop saying that you're already thinking about running again in 2004. People are going to think you have nothing else to do." He suggests Gore consider dental school instead. For those who share Novello's wacky sense of humor, this third volume of Lazlo correspondence will bring many laughs.

From Booklist

Don't call Novello a one-trick pony. The early Saturday Night Live cast member and writer does at least two tricks. Out in public, he plays Father Guido Sarducci, a priest-caricature given to excruciating monologues on such matters as the bill for the last lunch. At home, he plays Lazlo Toth, writer of impertinent letters to political celebrities and big businesses. Typical Lazlo missives are the ones in this third collection of them complaining to Delta Air Lines on the assumption that the company has something to do with the Delta Partners that keeps him waiting for the crown for a broken tooth. Only the occasional insult in the letters is funny (e.g., Monica Lewinsky can't get a date except with a man who can't leave the house alone), so most of the book's laughs arise from the lameness of the replies Lazlo receives. No pol or business will risk telling a fool he's a fool. Hawking by Novello's fellow TV geeks will boost initial interest in this surefire next-year's-garage-sale item. Acquire with caution.

Don Novello a.k.a. Lazlo Toth has done it again.
As hilarious and insigtful a read as I've had this century.
The letters are as great as ever and the responses show these guys for what they are.
While reading I had to put it down more than a few times because I can't laugh that hard and read at the same time.
My only question...Don...what took you so long?
Get this book!!!

Lazlo Toth is back with more of his hilarious letters. This is his third book of letters to corporations, politicians, religious leaders and anyone else he feels like writing to. Lazlo is a funny as ever, but the responses he receives aren't as funny as in his other books. Most of the time, he just receives a form letter, if they bother to write back at all. Still, a very funny book, if you share Don Novello's absurd sense of humor.

As a fan of Don Novello's earlier works, I was concerned that perhaps, this book wasn't going to be as funny as the older books. But, I'm happy to report that Don Novello is as "bent" as he ever was! Over the years, these books have inspired me to write a few memorable letters of my own and I think I might start writing them again. These books are best when read aloud and shared with friends. You'll laugh til you cry!

HILARIOUS AND EDUCATIONAL!
In reading Don Novello's wonderful and funny book "Bush to Bush" "The Lazlo Tooth Letters" I couldn't stop laughing. But on a serious note, I would like to know if it's true that there's a venomous poison Lurking Monk fish,or the Lurking Monk Fish of Mazatlan. Like a chameleon it has the ability to change colors, and it's biggest trick is turning blue and disguising itself as water. it may be true ... but since Lazlo Tooth wrote it I doubted it, therefore,I have written to an authority on "Dangerous Marine Animals of the world" I am waiting for a reply. I have read all Don Novello's books and look forward to him writing many more in the future.It is enjoyable disgussing his books with my friends who enjoy his books as well. I suggest his books make great gifts for any occasion for young and old alike
