The author

Frank Flannery is a genius. The funny sort of genius that makes people wonder if there's something not quite right about him. His entire life is devoted to the research, creation, and relating of jokes—the more esoteric, the better. He lives in New Jersey in the head of ghostwriter Katherine Furman.
