Horseradish:  Bitter Truths You Can’t Avoid, by Lemony Snicket

HarperCollinsPublishers, New York, 2007.  168 pages.

ISBN: 978-0-06-124006-5

Here’s the humor of Lemony Snicket, author of A Series of Unfortunate Events, without the depressing storyline.  I’ve always thought his sense of humor hilarious — but get too thoroughly immersed in the story to really enjoy orphans with one dreadful problem after another.

This book is a series of humorous insights on life ranging from a paragraph long to a page or two.  I picked it up and soon was reading aloud from it to anyone I could find.  And laughing more and more, the longer I read.

Now, I don’t recommend reading this book in one sitting.  That would be a bit much.  But having it around to get a daily dose of laughter is a great idea.

Here’s a link to some of the entries I couldn’t resist quoting:

I found this to be a hilarious and utterly silly book.
