Well, since I’ve been on a tragic-events reading kick lately, there are precious few funny books in my recently-read list. But here are two that stand out:
- Assassination Vacation by Sarah Vowell
In which she makes fun of her serious approach to visiting the sites of Lincoln’s, Garfield’s, and McKinley assassinations. This sounds like a tragic-events book–and kind of, it is–but as a humorous book, it works.
Kind of weird that they’re both nonfiction, but not completely so… given that apparently my system is rejecting fiction at the moment.
