Subject: RE: BS: greatest written comedy
I've read so many good ones ... but ok, faves off the top of my head:
I did love "A Confederacy of Dunces"
Anything by Eliot Fintushel, very bizarre sense of humor.
Eric Flint's "Joe's World" fantasy-spoof series, beginning with "The Philosophical Strangler" ... lots of nods to Joseph Conrad and a spoof of an Icelandic saga ...
Ok, if anyone remembers the name of this one and the author ... kind of stream-of-consciousness with the author gradually taking letters out of the alphabet a chapter at a time and then putting them back in again.
All I can think of for the moment ... oh, and _Kind Hearts and coronets_ is one of my favorite movies of all time.
