A small book with a humorous look at the dark side of life. "Gleefully reminding us that life is just an angst-filled prelude to death, Eric Marcus has assembled the drolly dire insights of famous pessimists and everyday cynics who know that the glass is indeed half empty. Celebrate the plight we call life with dozens of part- and full-time grouches--Woody Allen, Fran Lebowitz, Henry Miller, Anne Sexton, Clarence Darrow, Albert Einstein, Malcolm Forbes, and many more-- who irreverently accentuate the absurdity of relationships, families, money, religion, politics and health; the inevitability of wrinkles, cellulite, war, and famine; and the sanity-saving value of a health dose of cynicism."
