Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

If brevity is the soul of wit, then be thankful that doctors made short work of Andy Borowitz's life-threatening intestinal ailment. Known for his award-winning humor writing, Borowitz here recounts the literally twisted story of his revolting colon and the successive surgeries required to fix it. Rife with deadpan observations and quirky characterizations of the medical staff that attended him, An Unexpected Twist offers humor on a number of levels, from breezy ruminations on life, death, and love to the simply scatological. (Let it be said that Borowitz's writing is no less charismatic for embracing some pretty obvious opportunities for laughs.) In the end, it seems, his brush with death from the inside out proved an ambiguous blessing: the author suffered the accompanying discomfort, pain, and fear; readers reap the rewards of his levity aplenty. --Jason Kirk

Review

Best Books of the Year -- Amazon.com
Amazon.com's Best Kindle Single of 2012
"Andy Borowitz is the funniest human on Twitter, and that's not mean praise. His first original e-book -- the current best-selling Single -- is a seriocomic memoir called "An Unexpected Twist" (99 cents), about a blockage in his colon that nearly killed him. This funny book has a sneaky emotional gravity. As the time of his illness he'd been married only a few months, and his small book becomes a rather large love story."
-- Dwight Garner, The New York Times
