“This book thoroughly exploits the vitality, richness and diversity of Australian comic writing in the period from 1900 to the present day.  It contains nearly 100 contributions – stories, verses, essays and burlesques – from some 60 authors, including Alan Marshall, Nino Culotta, Norman Lindsay, Judith Wright, Max Harris, David Forrest, Kenneth Slessor, Steele Rudd, Judah Waten, A. D. Hope, Henry Lawson, J. D. G. Medley, Katherine Susannah Prichard, Alexander Macdonald, John Morrison, C. J. Dennis, Thelma Forshaw and Gavin Casey.  The moods, from sophisticated satire to belly-laugh slapstick, are captured in stories of character and situation; tales of fantasy and folklore; parodies, epigrams and inspired nonsense.”
