Harry G. Frankfurt’s Bullshit netted a shitstorm of press when it came out this year, despite the fact that it’s little more than an academic paper, stretched out to constitute a book, as he admitted during a lackluster interview with President Jon Stewart.
Meanwhile, Nova Scotian Laura Penny’s own Your Call Is Important To Us: The Truth About Bullshit, offers up a sophisticated exegesis of bullshit, and a few jokes to boot. So if you have a choice between two shitty books, why not opt for the one that offers trenchant wit along with the shit? Laura Penny reads for free at Hart House tonight. 7:30pm.
