Book Description Harper. 1 Cloth(s), 2013. hard. Book Condition: New. The author of The Cardboard Universe and Sudden Noises from Inanimate Objects, Christopher Miller here takes us on a hilarious romp through what used to pass for comedy—from hiccups and henpecked husbands to outhouses and old maids—and considers what it tells us about our country yesterday and today. He revisits nearly 200 comic staples that have been passed down through our culture for generations—many originating from the vaudeville age—and explores the contexts from which they arose, why they were funny at that time, and why they eventually lost their appeal. More than 150 illustrated examples appear throughout the book as well, from Winsor McCay's Rarebit Fiend to Ernie Bushmiller's Nancy."Miller's lovingly jaundiced exploration of the way America once laughed crackles with insight; the result is that rare book on humor that is as entertaining as its subject."—Publishers Weekly 352. Bookseller Inventory # 62881

Book Description Harper, 2014. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: American Cornball is Christopher Miller's irresistibly funny illustrated survey of popular humorthe topics that used to make us laugh, from hiccups and henpecked-husbands to outhouses and old maidsand what it tells us about our country yesterday and today. Miller revisits nearly 200 comic staples that have been passed down through our culture for generations, many originating from the vaudeville age. He explores the (often unseemly) contexts from which they arose, why they were funny in their time, and why they eventually lost their appeal. The result is a kind of taxonomy of humor during America's golden age that provides a deeper, more profound look at the prejudices, preoccupations, and peculiarities of a nation polarized between urban and rural, black and white, highborn and lowbrow. As he touches on issues of racism and sexism, cultural stereotypes and violence, Miller reveals how dramatically our moral sensibilities have shifted, most notably in the last few decades. Complete with more than 100 period illustrations, American Cornball is a richly entertaining survey of our shifting comic universe. Bookseller Inventory # ABE_book_new_0062225170
