This review is from: Red Diaper Baby: Three Comic Monologues (Paperback)
If you grew up with poltically active parents of any sort, the first the three monologues in this book will resonate strongly. In that monologue, Kornbluth gives a hilarious explanation of the dynamics of his relationship with his parents. He discusses how his parents influenced childhood goals (to lead the worldwide Communist revolution) and the various odd but amusing habits they -- especially his father -- exhibited.
Kornbluth's writing style is clearly influenced by the standup origins of the work; it reads quickly and yet slightly awkwardly, as a transcibed monologue generally will. But despite the slightly different writing style, you will find yourself laughing out loud more often than not.
