These are bits of comedic writing at once both personal and personable. It's no small trick to consistently come across as warm AND funny, but this humorist delivers, page after hilarious page.
Inside this collection, dedicated to his readers who faithfully followed his weekly column for over 20 years, Hunter alternately whispers, croons, and rants his way through most every topic imaginable: from odd opinion polls, to tips on surviving medical care; from advice on staying sane as a writer, to advice about staying sane in mid-winter; from biting political satire, to Halloween costume critiques (Elsa from 'Frozen?' Or Zombies?); from the author's bruised history of household accidents, to why Ohio seems to serve up so many astronauts -- you'll be charmed and entertained when you veer Slightly off the Mark!
At 190 pages, it was a quick read, and I finished it within a day. I've been in a bit of a funk lately, and this was just what I needed to cheer me up. So if you haven't checked it out yet, I highly recommend it.
The book is made up of separate and short humorous columns, so it was a quick and fun read. I highly recommend this book to anyone, especially if you enjoy good humor.
