With Cruel Shoes, Steve Martin proves that his humor more than translates to the written page; it excels there. Since he has always written his own material, books are a natural medium for Steve's comic genius. And his extravagant wit shines brightly indeed in this rollicking collection of short fabulous pieces.

He writes as the deepest of his thoughts came, and he twists what the ordinary mind sees as reality into something far more entertaining.
The cruelty of the shoes he writes about in "Cruel Shoes" is troublesome, but quickly overcome by so many of the other pieces in the book.
Steve Martin has been seen as a comic genius for many years. "Cruel Shoes" allows the reader to see beyond the silliness of his standup routines with a dive deep into his heart and soul.
I loved the book. I recommend it for anyone and everyone who has ever seen or heard of Steve Martin or any of his visual works.
