“Plenty of laugh-out-loud moments.”—Washington Post
“Some names in this collection elicit laughter upon mention—Woody Allen, Dorothy Parker, E. B. White—but meet some new voices—Simon Rich on free-range chicks, Noah Baumbach on his last relationship in the form of Zagat reviews.”—Chicago Tribune, Editor’s Choice
“[Spans] decades of brilliant lunacy. . . . Warning label: Guffaws are a side effect of ingesting Disquiet.”—San Diego Union-Tribune
“Stellar indeed. . . . One of the joys of this collection is seeing how the writers approach a seemingly innocuous idea, then stretch it, shake it and bake it into something completely ridiculous and hilarious.”—Toronto Star
