Pure Drivel (Unabridged)

by Steve Martin

Open iTunes to Buy


In this ingeniously funny collection of humorous riffs, those who thought Steve Martin's gifts were confined to the screen will discover what readers of The New Yorker already know: that Martin is a master of the written word. Hilariously funny and intelligent in their skewering of the topic at hand, these pieces, some of which first appeared in The New Yorker, feature Martin at his finest. With a playwright's ear for dialogue, a sense of irony only Martin could muster, and a first-class comic ability to perfectly time the punch line, Pure Drivel will have listeners crying with laughter, and marveling at the fact that in addition to all of his many talents, Steve Martin is also a superb writer.

Some of the funniest things you will ever hear. Pure Genius.

Fantastic collection of essays

I adore this collection of Steve Martin's short essays from the New Yorker. The "side effects" was shown to me by a writer friend back when I didn't even know that Steve Martin wrote novels. I still cry laughing at this essay when I narrate it to people who I'm trying to sell on getting this audiobook.

Dear Amanda - another gem.

I'd love another book like this!

Could It Be More Boring?

Martin reads as if it’s a punishment. Possibly for his uninspired writing.
