About the author (2009)

Jonathan Swan's parents predicted from an early age he would be an author, albeit of his own downfall. Instead he wrote Quack Magic,a history of dubious medical cures, and the best-selling Man Walks into a Bar 2, and knows more jokes than is probably healthy for anyone. When not eavesdropping on strangers to see if he can pick up any new one-liners, he lives in London with his wife and three children, who all remain determined to never laugh at anything he says.
