Hits and Misses | Simon Rich
7 posts | 4 read | 7 to read
From a bitter tell-all by a horse who made a man famous and then got left behind to a gushing magazine profile of one of your favorite World War II dictators, these stories trawl through history to skewer our obsession with fame and fortune - all the way from ancient Babylon to Hollywood. What father-to-be wouldn't feel a little jealous when his baby outstrips his success from the womb? And what happens when a film critic is forced to live in the movies he so cruelly damned? Loved in the UK by celebs and writers alike, from Lauren Laverne to Matt Haig and Caitlin Moran, Simon Rich is back with his funniest and most personal collection of stories to date.

Simon Rich had me cackling out loud right away. These stories are so irreverent and fun with characters ranging from a genius in utero infant to Paul Revere‘s horse to Adolf Hitler. Some are better than others, as the title implies, but all are entertaining. Great experience for my very first ARC!

PUB DATE: 7.24.18

A little rooftop poolside reading after a 2-hour morning kayak on Lady Bird Lake. It‘s hotter than 10 hell‘s out here. 🔥 Some legs in the background for ya. 😄 We‘re packed in tight up here.

Enjoying this #SimonRich #galley of humerous #shortstories. My very first #ARC! 🤗

Moray_Reads So exciting but so, so dangerous. I can't even look at my shelf right now 😩 But the utter joy of getting approved for something you REALLY want makes it worth it 1y

britt_brooke @Moray_Reads 😆 That‘s why I only requested 7 or 8 to start. And one declined me. That was a bummer, but whatever. 1y
Moray_Reads @britt_brooke sometimes I'm secretly relieved to be declined. Someone needs to control my impulse to request and clearly that person is not going to be me 😆😆 1y
