Editorial Reviews

Review

San Diego Book Awards 2012 Finalist, General Non-Fiction, Humor

"These essays are poignant, funny and intellectually charged." -- Traci Foust, Nowhere Near Normal


"Like Dave Barry and David Sedaris, David Boyne analyzes life's minor truths and comes up with the uncomfortable questions that may not topple governments, but do make life richer." --Ken Callaway, Screenwriter

"These stories take you on a sardonic ride as curvy as it is bodacious. Sardonic, curvy, bodacious. Yeah, that's what I said."  --Julie Ann Weinstein, Flashes From the Other World 

"These essays brim with profound insight. They are tales of ordinary life, extraordinarily observed. And they're funny. So funny you hardly know he's making you think 'til you catch yourself doing it." --Patty Kadel, Cartoonist (PattyKadel.com)

"Read David Boyne at your own peril, and be prepared to duck." -- Thornton Sully, A Word With You Press

Format: Paperback
David Boyne's essays in this collection will certainly tickle your funny bone at one point or another and even make you think in the way a stand up comic does about serious life issues. However, after awhile, the style seems a bit like a feedback loop and I felt like I was watching reruns of my favorite sitcom. Nevertheless, it's sill a great and fresh perspective from an original voice that uses colloquialisms masterfully.

Some people just have "it". It's hard to describe what "it" is, but you know it when you see it. David Boyne has "it". He talks about his shortcomings in his books (and even the title of this one starts out with his usual self deprecation) but he is so talented with his words, it's no wonder he's been up for numerous awards--and a successful writer. I'm a fan and plan to get the entire collection.

What a fun read! Dave is a wonderfully insightful storyteller. His essays highlight the comic ironies of the past, present and future of everyday life and make you laugh out loud and say; yeah, that's so true! Then he surprises you with a poignant tale of a step-dad interaction with a 4 year old, a trip to the Twin Towers when they stood tall and breakfast with Annie, his 80 plus year old neighbor.

Dave makes you think and feel and laugh. That's a great read in my book!

Most writing is self-referential, but that too often becomes mundane, loses itself in the ennui and trivia of a day. And therein lies the story. Nicely turned, some careful craft at work; not a spiraling down, rather a lifting out. Yes, a definite outie, not an innie.
