Description: "Mirth of a Nation" is a premier showcase of 45 great literary humorists and masters of the journalistic jab, the social spoof, the parodic proof, the satire, the tirade, the send-ups, and most any other literary means necessary to scrutinize the too-fine print of our times with humor's corrective lens. Here are those "last laughs" and "wit's end" pieces everyone reads first but then loses in back issues of favorite magazines and newspapers, including:
-- John Updike on cross-dressing with J. Edgar Hoover
-- Fran Lebowitz on the richness of money
-- David Ives on being Degas for a day
-- Garry Trudeau on re-retranslating Madonna

Also included are riotous contributions from David Sedaris, Merrill Markoe, P.J. O'Rourke, Christopher Buckley, Dave Barry, and Roy Blount, Jr.
