Funny-Ass Thoreau - Henry David Thoreau, M. Allen Cunningham
Not your run-of-the-mill quote book. Here's Henry in his own words as he tries to wrangle a pig, pees in the woods, loses a tooth, laughs at Emerson shooing off his own cow, observes the slippery slapstick of snowmelt and mud in the Concord streets, elaborates on his dislike of other men's bowels, and more. Included in this volume is Thoreau's posthumously-published lecture, "Getting a Living," which can (and should be) read as a stand-up philosophy routine bristling with one-liners.
