9780142180273: Every Day Is an Atheist Holiday!: More Magical Tales from the Bestselling Author of God, No!

Let's be honest - nobody has more fun than atheists. Don't believe it? Well, consider this: For non-believers, every day you're alive is a day to celebrate! And no one celebrates life to the fullest like Penn Jillette - the larger, louder half of legendary magic duo Penn & Teller - whose spectacularly witty and sharply observant essays in Every Day Is an Atheist Holiday! will entertain zealots and skeptics alike. Whether he's contemplating the possibility of life after death, deconstructing popular Christmas carols, or just calling bullsh*t on Donald Trump's apprentice training, Jillette does not fail to shock and delight his readers. And as ever, underneath these rollicking rants lie a deeply personal philosophy and a generous spirit, which find joy and meaning in family, and peace in the simple beauty of the everyday. Every Day Is an Atheist Holiday! is a hysterical affirmation of life's magic from one of the most distinctly perceptive and provocative humorists writing today.

About the Author:

Penn Jillette has been one half of the Emmy Award–winning, world-famous magic duo Penn & Teller for more than thirty-five years. He is the author of God, No! and the novel Sock, as well as several books cowritten with Teller. Jillette lives with his family in Las Vegas.

Review:

“[Jillette’s] words are funny, dignified and make perfect sense. An outspoken wordsmith offers more intelligent, humorous and against-the-grain perspectives.”—Kirkus Reviews

“Jillette, the taller and more verbose half of Penn & Teller follows up 2011’s God No! with this further exploration of his own atheism....allowing his intelligence and razor-sharp wit to shine through....will surely appeal not only to Penn & Teller fans, but also to readers who welcome the opportunity to examine their own deeply held beliefs from a new angle.”David Pitt, Booklist

“Undeniably fun....fans of Jillette’s magic and comedy will be thrilled....entertaining....it would be difficult to not find something fun here.”—Publisher’s Weekly

“Penn Jillette is a twenty-first-century Lord of Misrule: big, boisterously anarchic, funny, Rabelaisian, impossible—and unique. There isn’t—couldn’t be—better not be—anybody like him.”—Richard Dawkins, New York Times bestselling author of The God Delusion

“Giddily blasphemous...Jillette the author sounds like Jillette the performer—sharp and subversive...There is a forceful intelligence at work here.”—The Washington Post Book World

“Thoughtful and provocative...The man can really tell a story: he is wonderful at finding the right vivid image, the right hilarious detail.”—NPR.org

“His books are where we get the unfiltered Penn....Who wouldn’t want advice about April Fools’ Day from America’s trickster laureate?....The best parts [of the book] are random, profane but delicious insider stories that few others can deliver.”—Wall Street Journal
 
“Readers will enjoy extremely funny stories from a man who loves his family and doesn’t let his celebrity go to his head.”—Associated Press
