Description

The legendary Deep Thoughts and New Yorker humorist Jack Handey is back with his very first novel-a hilarious, absurd, far-flung adventure tale.

THE STENCH OF HONOLOLU

Are you a fan of books in which famous tourist destinations are repurposed as unlivable hellholes for no particular reason? Read on!

Jack Handey's exotic tale is full of laugh-out-loud twists and unforgettable characters whose names escape me right now. A reliably unreliable narrator and his friend, who is some other guy, need to get out of town. They have a taste for adventure, so they pay a visit to a relic of bygone days-a travel agent-and discover an old treasure map. She might have been a witch, by the way. Our heroes soon embark on a quest for the Golden Monkey, which takes them into the mysterious and stinky foreign land of Honolulu. There, they meet untold dangers, confront strange natives, kill and eat Turtle People, kill some other things and people, eat another thing, and discover the ruins of ancient civilizations.

As our narrator says, "The ruins were impressive. But like so many civilizations, they forgot the rule that might have saved them: Don't let vines grow all over you."

Customer Reviews

Ridiculous and Wonderfully Absurd

This story has comedy gems that had me howling out loud. Mad Libs on Steroids is like saying Funny Made Super-funny so I don't see the issue there.
In the pseudoscientific equation of comedy, tragedy plus time, often forgotten is just the right brand of surprise. Give me more Handey Brand surprise. Quick read is perfect for iPhone. Thank you.

Just incredible

Funniest thing read in years. Impossible to stop after the first page. Pure stenchite.

Hilarious

My favorite comedy writer all time. Hilarious book!
