For the first time ever, hear Woody Allen’s Mere Anarchy in the author’s own distinctive and hilarious voice. Here, in his first short-story collection since his three classics Getting Even, Without Feathers, and Side Effects, Allen has managed to write a book that answers the most profound questions of human existence.
In 18 flights of inspirational sanity, we are introduced to a cast of characters only Allen could imagine: Jasper Nutmeat, Flanders Mealworm, and the independent film mogul E. Coli Biggs, just to name a few.
Whether he is writing about art, sex, food, or crime, Allen is explosively funny. In "This Nib for Hire", a Hollywood bigwig comes across an author's book in a little country store and describes it in a way that aptly captures this magnificent volume: "Actually," the producer says, "I'd never seen a book remaindered in the kindling section before."
Woody Allen’s short story collections Mere Anarchy, Getting Even, Without Feathers, and Side Effects are available separately or together as part of The Woody Allen Collection.
