Writing a narrative in the second person — in which the subject is actually “you” — is difficult and uncommon.

Sheehan commits to and develops the you-are-there and engaging notions to insane heights in I Am Not a Wolf.

The reader is a wolf in this story. The one who is passing for humans and living a happy, great life while constantly trying to keep its true identity as a wolf hidden at all times. It’s similar to a video game but much funnier and more enjoyable.

It sometimes feels as if celebrities are born to be famous: Mo Gilligan, indeed, is so inherently witty and funny that it feels as if he was meant to be famous. But, in this entertaining, often touching memoir titled Life Stories from Way Back Then, Gilligan tells about the incidents of his life that shaped him into the man he is now, long before his internet humor videos propelled him to national, then international recognition.

Gilligan narrates a lovely story of humor, careers, and community, from memories of childhood in South London and his school days to early comic gigs and learning how to deal with fame.

If you are searching for the best humor books of all the time, read Tales of the City. Armistead Maupin’s nine books, written and published over thirty years, are many things: heart-racing, revelatory, consoling, and revolutionary.

They are, nonetheless, really amusing. The expansive chosen families that were discovered and lost in San Francisco’s LGBTQ+ scene at a time of immense love, life, and tragedy are well-written in witty repartee and excellent observation. Begin with Tales of… and work your way through the rest.

Jilly Cooper’s writing is full of humor, but before she was frosting the Rutshire Chronicles with jokes about deception, sex, romance, socializing, and weekend trips, she was penning incredibly funny essays about the same topics.

Since Compton Mackenzie became a household name, comedy has gone through many variations, yet some types of humor never cease to be amusing.
