Not Quite a Genius
by Nate Dern




Overview -
"Highly recommended reading for those hungry for surprise" (A.J. Jacobs, New York Times bestselling author)--a rollicking collection of personal stories and essays on relationships, technology, and contemporary society from the news editor at Funny or Die and former artistic director at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theater.

This hilarious collection of essays spans a wide variety of topics. There's the open letter to Charles Manson, a brave archeologist's journey into a suburban man cave, and a long overdue, sternly worded letter from Leif Erikson to Christopher Columbus. Walt Whitman even teaches a spin class.

Nate Dern's razor-sharp eye examines modern society and technology, man buns, dating apps, and juicing crazes. Anyone who's ever scrunched their eyes at WiFi Terms & Conditions, listened to the reasons that led a vegetarian to give up meat, or looked on in horror at the evolving audacity of reality TV will appreciate Dern's wicked and funny take on modern life. Not Quite a Genius is fun, and funny, "a breath of fresh air that you can eat up bit by bit or all at once" (Abbi Jacobson, cocreator and star of Broad City).
