Pulitzer Prize-winning author Joshua Cohen (The Netanyahus) reintroduces America's zaniest humourist to a new generation of readers. When asked about himself the writer Sidney Joseph Perelman once quipped, 'before they made him, they broke the mold.' Nowhere is S. J. Perelman's one-of-a-kind, madcap sensibility-his gift for wordplay, witticism, spoofery, and sheer nonsense-on better display than in his classic collection Crazy Like a Fox, here restored to print for the first time in decades. In a playful, loving tribute to the funny man, novelist Joshua Cohen-also an erudite wordsmith and punster-introduces Perelman's sui generis comic pieces to a new generation of readers, certain to fall in love with the writer whom The New York Times once noted for his ability 'to transform the common cliche or figure of speech into an exploding cigar.' Included here are such beloved classics as: the Joycean virtuoso performance 'Scenario'; 'A Farewell to Omsk,' Perelman's hilarious homage to Dosto
