9780307946478: The Uncollected David Rakoff (Anchor Books Original)
Críticas:

One of our funniest writers. "People"
Rakoff can issue withering snark with the best of them. But once his rapier wit has sliced the buttons off his target s clothing, revealing the quivering, vulnerable mass within, his fundamental sense of decency gets the best of him. "Salon""

The dizzying work of the late, preposterously talented Rakoff has finally been corralled in an anthology of profound entertainment.
--O, The Oprah Magazine, "10 Titles to Pick Up Now"
A candid, hilarious, self-effacing grab bag of writings on subjects the art of the wedding toast, tween angst, Frank Sinatra, friendship, New York tourists, and Rakoff s many adventures abroad and on public radio that tickled the prize-winning humorist.
Elle
A must-read for Rakoff enthusiasts. It includes all manner of LOL material. . . .Some of the wit on display here reminds [us] of vintageFran Lebowitz. . . . But Rakoff's best stuff emanates from his big gay self.. . . All in all, a veritable Rakoff cornucopia.
Bay Area Reporter
An eclectic anthology of ephemera . . . and personal insights. . . . A haunting epitaph to a talented writer. . . . Any Rakoff completist won't want to overlook this essential collection.
Out.com, 10 Books We re Excited for This Fall
"The shorter works fiction and essays of prize-winning author Rakoff needed to be collected. Here, in prose touching and thoughtful, detailed and just hinted at, he limns what it has meant to become a New Yorker; to come out as a gay man; to suffer the heartbreak of friendships when AIDS was new and, perhaps, scarier in other words, a life well lived, with fleeting moments carefully observed. This wide-ranging collection encompasses all that brought Rakoff renown. . . . [And] will suit readers who seek thoughtful essays and the grace and the humor, in top form, of a top writer.
Booklist
[An] enjoyable anthology. . . . Rakoff writes with eloquence and grace. His voice is a sui generis mix of humor and misery. . . . Fans of David Sedaris and Jon Ronson will find the book a fine addition to Rakoff s hilarious body of work; its publication further highlights the loss of his truly original outlook.
Library Journal
One of our funniest writers.
People
Rakoff can issue withering snark with the best of them. But once his rapier wit has sliced the buttons off his target s clothing, revealing the quivering, vulnerable mass within, his fundamental sense of decency gets the best of him.

Reseña del editor:

Bestselling and Thurber Prize winning humorist David Rakoff was one of the most original, delightfully acerbic voices of his generation. Here, in one place, is the best of his previously uncollected material most never before published in book form.
David Rakoff s singular personality spills from every page of this witty and entertaining volume, which includes travel features, early fiction works, pop culture criticism, and transcripts of his most memorable appearances on public radio s Fresh Air and This American Life.
These writings chart his transformation from fish out of water, meekly arriving for college in 1982, to a proud New Yorker bluntly opining on how to walk properly in the city. They show his unparalleled ability to capture the pleasures of solitary pursuits like cooking and crafting, especially in times of trouble; as well as the ups and downs in the life-span of a friendship, whether it is a real relationship or an imaginary correspondence between Gregor Samsa and Dr. Seuss (co-authored with Jonathan Goldstein). Also included is his novel-in-verse Love, Dishonor, Marry, Die, Cherish, Perish.
By turns hilarious, incisive and deeply moving, this collection highlights the many facets of Rakoff s huge talent and shows the arc of his remarkable career.
With a foreword by Paul Rudnick."
