The Last Laugh contains seventeen pieces (Perelman called them feuilletons) first published in The New Yorker, in which a considerable part of Perelman’s writing first appeared during a span of approximately fifty years. Published for the first time and included as Part II of The Last Laugh are four chapters from Perelman’s unfinished autobiography, The Hindsight Saga, chapters which leave the reader wishing that death had delayed for a while the final cut-off of the flow of Perelman’s reminiscences.

I have been reading Mr. Perelman since 1963 and loving every minute. I think I must have lent out the book the story I seek is in.

The most engaging part of Sid's last work is the autobiographical section at the rear. This is revealing of the man and very satisfying because it is written without any pretentious style.

The collection of sketches in the first half are tired and lack the sparkle and originality of his best works. But when at his peak what a remarkable writer.; e.g. ' Most of the Most of S J Perelman'.
Best satirist of all times.
Hearing the first few notes of a musical piece, performed by truly gifted musicians, one can easily tell that something quite unique is taking place. Just so when I began reading S. J. Perelman's works. There were moments when I was overcome by laughter and dazzled by his mastery and odd use of English. The Last Laugh is a collection of cleverly written tales, which can be reread with the same interest and delight as one did on the inaugural read. Perelman is a great American writer & humorist.
This collection of Perelman's last pieces (most of which appeared in "The New Yorker") will tickle fans almost as much as his best work in his heyday (and when was his heyday? 30s? 40s? 50s? 60s? Probably all of them). The book also includes several chapters from his planned autobiography, telling amusing tales of the Marx Brothers, Nathanael West (his brother-in-law!), Dorothy Parker, and others.

Call this a fond goodbye from one of the great humorists of all time.
