Excellent find in the bargain bin at Lee’s Comics in Mountain View.

It would be fair to say that in college I minored in Late Night With David Letterman. I watched and studied the show almost every night. (I also usually watched Later with Costas and/or Late Nite with David Sanborn after that.)

My friend's dad had this book when it first came out (1984) and I remember thinking it was the funniest thing in the world. I never saw it anywhere after that. Until a few years ago, that is. I found it on ebay and bought it immediately. Best $10 ever.

Everyone knows that Merrill Markoe just wrote a book called Cool, Calm & Contentious. But did you know she also did a first book? It’s true, because that is how ordinal numbers work, and for the purposes of this, it is Late Night with David Letterman: The Book.

Read the rest of the review on Splitsider.

No, seriously. This book is awesome. An odd book version of the odd show that was Late Night in its early years. When I found a copy of this book on the shelf of an acquaintance in NYC, we became best friends for life.
