Praise For Deliriously Happy

“Larry Doyle’s nervy, off-the-wall, often naughty, always hilarious essays will make you Deliriously Happy.”
-Vanity Fair

“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.”
-Flavorpill

“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.”
-Kirkus

“No matter the subject, Doyle can be trenchant, funny, esoteric, and unpredictable.”
-Publishers Weekly
