(Not That You Asked): Rants, Exploits, and Obsessions by Steve Almond

In(Not that You Asked), Steve Almond documents a life spent brawling with the idiot kings of modern culture. He squares off against Sean Hannity on national TV, takes on Oprah Winfrey, nearly gets kidnapped by a reality TV crew, and winds up in Boston, where he quickly enrages the entire population of Red Sox Nation. Amid the carnage, he finds time to celebrate his literary hero, the late Kurt Vonnegut. These are essays theLos Angeles Timeshas called rich, fearless [and] cutting. Praise for(Not that You Asked) Refreshingly irreverent . . . absurdly funny. The Boston Globe [Almond] scores big in every chapter of this must-have collection. Biting humor, honesty, smarts and heart: Vonnegut himself would have been proud. Kirkus Reviews(starred review) Taunting, revealing, irreverent, and earnest. The New York Times Steve Almond has created a distinctive voice and literary persona. Pleasure-obsessed, self-deprecating, horny, hilarious and always dedicated to parsing the messy terrain of the human heart.
