REVIEWED BY MICHELLE GREEN
A gaggle of sketches and warped monologues, Farm has an imaginative power that can trigger snort-fests. The son of New York Times columnist Frank Rich, Simon is a senior at Harvard, and his best takes are riffs on childhood. Consider "A conversation at the grown-ups' table as imagined at the kids' table": "Mom: Pass the wine, please, I want to become crazy. Dad: Okay. Grandmother: Did you see the politics? It made me angry. Dad: Me too. When it was over, I had sex." Ferociously creative, this book is for readers craving both smart humor and belly laughs.
