Editorial Reviews

Review

“Only McSweeney’s could combine politics and theater in such a strange, amusing way.” —Los Angeles Times
 
“Pokes fun at all manner of political persuasion, often in a tone reminiscent of Mad magazine—that is, mangled lyrics—but minus a tune to follow. . . . Jolly good fun.” —Leonard Kniffel, Booklist

Format: Paperback
The McSweeney's Book of Politics and Musicals is a rock-solid collection that would not look out of place in either handsomely-appointed library or gas-station bathroom: this sucker has RANGE. I laughed repeatedly. I did not cry, but I was not expecting to.

This book made me smile almost continuously. There are some very amusing, if brief bits that satirize everything in need of satirizing. Alas, the material is relevant to a particular time and set of events. Read it now before the humor turns into farce!
