Slightly funnier than a bus ticket,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Glad to Wear Glasses (Paperback)
Having heard John Hegley's laconic pronouncements on the wireless, I bought this book but was disappointed. The book comes across as a series of disjointed remarks with the odd rhyme thrown in.
As a standup, Hegley is quite amusing, and has an appealing persona. But written down his bons mots are strangely lifeless. They resemble bits of paper strewn about an untidy adolescent's bedroom. Your first impulse is to reach for the vacuum cleaner.
