Let's Be Less Stupid
An Attempt to Maintain My Mental FacultiesBook - 2015
In Let's Be Less stupid, longtime New Yorker staffer and former SNL writer Patty Marx employs the weapon she wields best--razor-sharp humor--to tackle what is perhaps the most difficult facet of aging-the decline of the mind. From losing her keys to forgetting her sister-in-law's name, Marx has done it all, and somehow prevailed with friendships intact. Unrelentingly funny and unexpectedly candid, Let's Be Less Stupid speaks to women and men of a certain age, but it will make you laugh at any age. Filled with anecdotes about trying to learn Cherokee, zapping her brain with electricity, taking pills that make her pay attention, and listening to hours of Mozart--all in the service of keeping her mental faculties intact--this is an utterly fresh and original take from one of the smartest comedic writers today.
