I will dig into this Cutting for Stone. My NY subscription has lapsed, not that I was an e-timely reader though I repeatedly aspired to flip through the magazine at daybreak of its release. I would accrue steep consigning a hassle-free weekend for bulk read that never materialized. I gave up! I fancy medical humor, the likes of Doctor series of books by Richard Gordon. The humor is vintage, yet enjoyable. Current generation, in broad category, the touted humor elicits only dull laughs like Mindy Kaling's "Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me" (2011). The book is laureled in all the bestseller stands. It even has some cool metaphors and cliquish allusions, unlike literary allusions, really chic allusions. I read the book to guage how the spirit of comedy not wit is demonstrated in books. Every time I read contemporary humor, I retreat into the former-day humor because that vintage style appeals to me more than the stand-up telegenic laughs. But these days every prospering TV comic star has a book deal followed by a Netflix show, which is great but interfering with time-honored humor.
