Disquiet, Please!: More Humor Writing From The New Yorker, ed. David Remnick and Henry Finder

This is a compilation of humor writing from the pages of The New Yorker, the second such collection. I really enjoyed seeing the continuity of style and tone throughout eighty years of the publication, as well as how humor has changed. Some I liked more than others, of course, and I obviously struggled with the pieces that reference people and events with which I'm not familiar. But it was still a fun read, worth recommending to people who enjoy smart humor with a strong dose of satire.
