Andy Borowitz's new book, The 50 Funniest American Writers (Library of America), is a collection of hilarious pieces ranging from O. Henty's "The Ransom of Red Chief" to Davis Sedaris' "Buddy, Can You Spare a Tire." Borowitz will be discussing the book at the Miami Book Fair this Saturday. Since its release, 50 Funniest has garnered massive critical acclaim and catapulted onto Amazon's bestseller list. "I'm very proud of the book," Borowitz says. "I worked very hard on it and think it's exactly the book I wanted it to be."
