The creator of The New Yorker's long running satirical column "The Borowitz Report", and "one of the funniest people in America" (CBS Sunday Morning) gives you The 50 Funniest American Writers*

Library of America's collection of hilarious stories, essays, and articles is an exclusive Who's Who of the very best American comic writing. Classic pieces of American humor appear here, such as "The Ransom of Red Chief" by O. Henry and a selection from Anita Loos' Gentlemen Prefer Blondes.

Contemporary writing is well represented, with entries from comedic geniuses like David Sedaris, Larry Willmore, Roy Blount Jr., Sloane Crosby, Bernie Mac, Wanda Sykes, and George Saunders plus laugh-out-loud lesser-known pieces from The New Yorker, Esquire, The Atlantic, National Lampoon, and The Onion.
