ACCLAIM FOR THIS IS A BOOK
"Showcases a dry wit that recalls early Woody Allen . . . Martin can add another line to his resume: literary funnyman."
--New York Post
"This is a linguistic hoot . . . a breath of fresh air . . . [The reader] will be absolutely entertained."
About the Author
Demetri Martin rose to relative obscurity when he started doing stand-up comedy in New York City at the end of the 20th Century. Later he became a writer at Late Night with Conan O'Brien and then a regular performer on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. In 2003, Demetri won the Perrier Award at the International Fringe Festival for his first one-man show, If I. He released a comedy album called These Are Jokes and then created and starred in his own television series called Important Things with Demetri Martin. His first stand-up comedy special, Demetri Martin: Person was considered by many to be his longest and only hour-long stand-up comedy special until the release of his second special, Demetri Martin: Standup Comedian in late 2012. Martin has appeared in movies as an actor, most recently in Steven Soderbergh's Contagion and most lengthily in Ang Lee's Taking Woodstock. His first book, This Is a Book by Demetri Martin was a New York Times bestseller. Demetri has brown hair, and he is allergic to peanuts. You can find him at www.demetrimartin.com, at www.facebook.com/demetrimartin, on Twitter @demetrimartin, and in various places in the actual physical world.

The only thing that I wish was different was the lack of page numbers. Sometimes I almost missed a page because the pages stuck together and without page numbers it can be hard to tell if you did or not. However, the book was a quick read for me (1-2 hours) that I will probably reread it again and hopefully see anything I may have missed the first read.
Overall, I found it to be a great follow up to the first. If you enjoyed his previous books, his show, or his standup, you'll want to get this. And as always, I can't wait for the next one.
The drawings range between brilliantly witty, darkly funny, observations on the human condition (some dark but thoughtful), and the occasional clever fish joke. This is one of only a few books that made me laugh out loud consistently the whole way through.
You can read the book in one sitting, but it's best to be slowly consumed and savored like a microwaved burrito. Several of the drawings will make you pause and think. Many other drawings will send you on a wild chase around your house to show your wife the latest drawing in the book that made you burst out laughing like a hyena.
I'm happy I pointed my face at this book.
