A hilarious collection inspired by a former Saturday
Night Live writer's real experiences in Hollywood,
chronicling the absurdity of fame and the humanity of
failure in a world dominated by social media influencers and
reality TV stars.
Simon Rich is "one of the funniest writers in America"
(Daily Beast)--a humorist who draws comparisons to Douglas
Adams (New York Times Book Review) and James Thurber
and P.G. Wodehouse (The Guardian). With Hits and
Misses, he's back with a hilarious new collection of
stories about dreaming big and falling flat, about ordinary
people desperate for stardom and the stars who are bored by
having it all.
Inspired by Rich's real experiences in Hollywood, Hits
and Misses chronicles all the absurdity of fame and
success alongside the heartbreaking humanity of failure.
From a bitter tell-all by the horse Paul Revere rode to
greatness to a gushing magazine profile of everyone's
favorite World War II dictator, these stories roam across
time and space to skewer our obsession with making it
big--from the days of ancient Babylon to the age of TMZ.
