One can't feel too bad for Silverstein's blundering efforts at journalistic success (he's now the editor of Texas Monthly), time and again hilariously foiled by The New Yorker. His keen observations, finely wrought characters, and self-deprecating humor all add to the book's success, as does the running question of which seems more improbably, his accounts that are fact or those that are fiction. A fine fun work, readers are sure to want to join Silverstein on his next road trip, whether real or imagined.
