Fiction. Sid Straw, the author of the correspondence that forms EVERYBODY SAYS HELLO, isn't Everyman, but he is someone everyone knows. He tries just a little too hard, says just a little too much, and that extra effort and those extra words are often his undoing. If only Sid could get out of his own way, his life would be wonderful. While Sid Straw may frustrate you at times, you'll end up rooting for him the same way you root for your own equally imperfect friends.

"Take a letter: Michael Kun, the master of contemporary belly-laugh-lettres, is at it again with another collection of comedic correspondence, this time from the pen of one sad sack Sid Straw who gets less respect than Rodney Dangerfield, but never gets his Enthusiasm Curbed, no matter what life dishes out. Kun doesn't rhyme with fun, but it should."—Mark Dunn
