The Best Australian Humorous Writing
Melbourne Univ. Publishing, Dec 1, 2008 - Humor - 288 pages
In The Best Australian Humorous Writing, Andrew O'Keefe and Steve Vizard corral our funniest minds and canniest observers into one entertaining anthology. The writers bring a unique antipodean mirth to everything that has touched our lives in recent times-from Sir Ian McKellen disrobing on stage to busting up the Logies, from the privatisation of Telstra to the curves of Nigella Lawson, from the perils of entertaining children to the perennial outrage that modern telecommunications offers. Whimsical, acerbic, energetic, witty, thought-provoking, absurd and downright funny, this diverse selection is not to be missed. Contributors include Phillip Adams * David Astle * Graeme Blundell * The Chaser * Barry Cohen * Ian Cuthbertson * Mark Dapin * Catherine Deveny * Frank Devine * Alexander Downer * Larissa Dubecki * Suzanne Edgar * Dame Edna Everage * Charles Firth * Germaine Greer * Gideon Haigh * Marieke Hardy * Matthew Hardy * Wendy Harmer * Clive James * Danny Katz * Malcolm Knox * Peter Lalor * John Lethlean * Mungo MacCallum * Shane Maloney * Shaun Micallef * Paul Mitchell * Les Murray * Olga Pavlinova Olenich * Guy Rundle * Roy Slaven * Steve Vizard * Garry Williams * Tony Wilson * Julia Zemiro
