“One More Thing: Stories and Other Stories” by BJ Novak

★★★★★

One More Thing

One More Thing is a collection of short stories, essays, and super short one-sentence stories. They range from funny, to dark, to poignant, but always entertaining. This book comes from BJ Novak, one of the main writers of The Office (US), and it’s very much the same sort of clever, laugh-out-loud humor.

I am nearly always disappointed with fictional “short story” books, but this was the exception to the rule. This book made me laugh in the most unexpected of places. There were little subtleties that made it fun — you could connect some of the stories if you paid attention. Also, having just finished my first watch of The Office, I can see where the show got some of its off-kilter, “who thinks of these things” humor. I’ll most-likely read this again, which I don’t say about most books.
