9780091920326: Mere Anarchy

'I am greatly relieved that the universe is finally explainable. I was beginning to think it was me.' Thus begins 'Strung Out', Woody Allen's hilarious application of the laws of the universe to daily life. Mere Anarchy, Woody Allen's first collection in over 25 years, features eighteen witty, wild and intelligent comic pieces - eight of which have never been in print before.

Surreal, absurd, rich in verbal play, bitingly satirical and just plain daft in the mode we have grown to love from his finest films, this flight-of-fancy collection includes tales of a body double who, mistaken for the film's star, is kidnapped by outlaws; a pretentious novelist forced to work on the novelisation of a Three Stooges film; a nanny secretly writing an expose of her Manhattan employers; crooks selling bespoke prayers on eBay; and how to react when you're asked to finance a Broadway play about the invention and manufacture of the adjustable showerhead.

Review:

"Allen is the funniest man in the world. Buy this book at once" ( the Times)

"One of the world's funniest writers" ( Irish Times)

" Mere Anarchy breaks a 27-year drought for fans of Allen the literary prankster. It more than justifies the wait... His stories are delicious confections: virtuoso turns, tipsy on their own linguistic ingenuity" ( Independent)

"If Allen had lived in Augustan England scholars would now be considering him alongisde Dryden, Pope and Swift" ( Daily Telegraph)

"Touched by genius" ( Glasgow Herald)

Book Description:

A collection of hilarious short stories from one of the world's funniest writers
