I am one of those people who loved the pointless vulgarity and hilarious character assassination of the National Lampoon in the 70s. If you were too, I suspect you will find this biography of Doug Kenney. A sad story. A former colleague, who is one of the most dignified persons that I know, appears in a photograph in this book. Turns out he was Doug Kenney's roommate in college. As Steven Wright says, "It's a small world, but I wouldn't want to paint it".
