Woody Allen at his best. This prose collection spans his best years in the 60s and 70s- funnier than any of his movies or standup. It is unfortunately rare that I laugh so hard I have to put the book down, but has occured several times in this book. I hate to name highlights, but indulge me: the correspondance chess game, and a literary analysis of an author's dry cleaning lists. Genius. GENIUS!!!!
