A bitingly funny grand tour of our culture of excess from an award-winning humorist.Whether David Rakoff is contrasting the elegance of one of the last flights of the supersonic Concorde with the good-times-and-chicken-wings populism of Hooters Air; working as a cabana boy at a South Beach hotel; or traveling to a private island off the coast of Belize to watch a soft-core video shoot?where he is provided with his very own personal manservant?rarely have greed, vanity, selfishness, and vapidity been so mercilessly skewered. Somewhere along the line, our healthy self-regard has exploded into obliterating narcissism; our manic getting and spending have now become celebrated as moral virtues. Simultaneously a Wildean satire and a plea for a little human decency, Don?t Get Too Comfortable shows that far from being bobos in paradise, we?re in a special circle of gilded-age hell.This edition includes an excerpt from David Rakoff's Love, Dishonor, Marry, Die, Cherish, Perish.
