Descrizione:

"Will Cuppy (1884-1949) is dark comedy that flirts with nihilism. Whether Will Cuppy directly derails man or lesser creatures on the evolutionary chain, there is always a generous helping of dark comedy. For a biographer, the man represents a treasure trove of possibilities.

Riassunto: Back in the golden age of humor books (late 1920s-early 1950s), when wits of the pantheon like Robert Benchley, James Thurber, and S.J. Perelman were producing their signature works, there was another singular satirist who more than held his own with such fast company: Will Cuppy (1884-1949). This factual funnyman's metier is dark comedy that flirts with nihilism. His agenda is baldly stated in such classic Cuppy book titles as How to Be a Hermit (1929), How to Tell Your Friends from the Apes (1931), and The Decline and Fall of Practically Everybody (1950). This biography doubles as a critical study of a satirist whose shish-kebabing of humanity was often done through the veiled anthropomorphic use of animals. For a biographer, Will Cuppy represents a treasure trove of possibilities. He was a great humorist, and most of his best work is still in print, but until now he has never been the subject of a book-length study. His mesmerizingly complex and eccentric private life almost trumps the comic accomplishments of his public persona.

About the Author: Wes D. Gehring is a professor of film at Ball State University and associate media editor for USA Today Magazine , for which he also writes the column "Reel World." He is the author of 32 film-related books. He lives in Muncie, Indiana.
