[Doyle] is, as his credits suggest, wickedly funny. New York Times Book Review
If Earth ever needs an Interplanetary Humor Ambassador, Larry Doyles the guy.Washington Post
“Larry Doyle’s nervy, off-the-wall, often naughty, always hilarious essays will make you Deliriously Happy.”
“Dark, funny, strange, funny, angst, funny. Sometimes we felt bad for laughing. But we did it anyway.”
-Huffington Post, 11 Books You Need to Know About
“Delightful — letter-perfect literature parodies, absurd tabloid-rag quizzes, and a slew of other unlikely stylistic landings stuck.”
“Doyle’s third book, Deliriously Happy...collects Doyle’s humorous essays from The New Yorker, National Lampoon, Esquire, and elsewhere. His scenarios often feature characters who are in fact deliriously—or delusionally—happy.”
-The Onion A.V. Club
“A dizzyingly diverse and consistently hilarious body of short humor pieces originally published in a variety of publications, making a case for the former Simpsons scribe as one of the premier practitioners of the form....An unpredictable, unfailingly intelligent demonstration of a unique wit given free reign.”
“No matter the subject, Doyle can be trenchant, funny, esoteric, and unpredictable.”
