There is definitely humor here amid the pathos. One goodreads reviewer noted that baby-boomers will like this best, and I think there's truth in that; I'm a bit younger than Dinty (can't possibly be his real name!) and I am rolling my eyes a bit at some of his references and obsessions, and his insistence that everyone else share them. He is funny. The way he links seemingly unrelated short bits to show you his theme is creative and enjoyable. A fun read if you have time on your hands. He is a writing professor at Ohio University, and I imagine his classes are interesting.
