About the Book:
Scoring weed for your uncle…Hanging out with porn stars on Christmas Eve…Eating nachos with the Mossad…Observing the Dyke Days of Awe…Getting held up at a Weight Watcher’s meeting…Spying on your naked Hebrew School teacher.

From Heeb magazine–the definitive voice of a proud, searching, and irreverent new generation of American Jews–this first-of-a-kind fast and fun showcase spotlights the hilarious and heartful raconteurial gifts of many of today’s leading writers, comedians, actors, artists, and musicians. Laura Silverman, Michael Showalter, Andy Borowitz, Joel Stein, Ben Greenman, Darrin Strauss, and others navigate sex, drugs, work, youth, family, and, on the lighter side, body and soul. You’ll never bleach your arm hair again.

My Review:
This book is a compilation of humorous short stories with a Jewish perspective. They were hilarious!! I laughed so hard at some of the stories and thoroughly enjoyed this easy read. The stories are just the right length to pique my interest and they were all well written. This book is perfect for the bathroom actually!!
If you are looking for some light reading to make you laugh or want to cheer someone up on your Christmas list with a nice gift, then this book is for you.
