… The 30 Funniest Books Ever Written.(Hast tip, Dave Lull.)
A rather parochial list, it seems to me. No Beerbohm. No Peter Peter De Vries. No Flann O'Brien. How about Waugh's Decline and Fall? Or Anthony Burgess's Inside Mr. Enderby? I didn't find A Confederacy of Dunces even interesting, let alone funny — though I know many other people did. I guess humor is in the individual funny bone.
