(no dust jacket) [bumping/softening to bottom corners and base of spine, gilt lettering rubbed but still readable on both spine and front cover, faint stain on top edge of text block with slight bleed-through at top edges of a number of pages; all in all a solid reading/reference copy]. The noted radical/critic/journalist/poet/activist expounds (quite perceptively) on various types and philosophies of humor, following a brief preface in which he quotes George Bernard Shaw, who said: "There is no more dangerous literary symptom than a temptation to write about wit and humor. It indicates the total of loss of both."
