Review: One More Thing by B.J. Novak - Chicago Tribune

Feb 04, Minutes Buy. A woman sets out to seduce motivational speaker Tony Robbins—turning for help to the famed motivator himself. A new arrival in Heaven, overwhelmed with options, procrastinates over a long-ago promise to visit his grandmother. We meet Sophia, the first artificially intelligent being capable of love, who falls for a man who might not be ready for it himself; a vengeance-minded hare, obsessed with scoring a rematch against the tortoise who ruined his life; and post-college friends who try to figure out how to host an intervention in the era of Facebook.

Along the way, we learn why wearing a red T-shirt every day is the key to finding love, how February got its name, and why the stock market is sometimes just. Across a dazzling range of subjects, themes, tones, and narrative voices, the many pieces in this collection are like nothing else, but they have one thing in common: they share the playful humor, deep heart, sharp eye, inquisitive mind, and altogether electrifying spirit of a writer with a fierce devotion to the entertainment of the reader.

Finding inspiration in questions from the nature of perfection to the icing on carrot cake, One More Thing has at its heart the most human of phenomena: love, fear, hope, ambition, and the inner stirring for the one elusive element just that might make a person complete.

Even when confronted with the sharpest, funniest prose, many people will respond with nothing more than a quiet chuckle.

Whatever the reason, all I can say is good luck chuckling quietly during One More Thing , the wonderfully cockeyed, consistently hilarious debut from B. His style is part Steven Wright and part Charlie Kaufman, married with a sharp ear for and satire of contemporary pop culture. A gifted observer of the human condition and a very funny writer capable of winning that rare thing: unselfconscious, insuppressible laughter.

Novak describes a writer and translator named J. The same might be said of Mr. Novak is nimble at showing how easily the ordinary can morph into the extraordinary and adept at making us see the surreal in the everyday. A funny writer with a great ear, but also as a genuine storyteller with an observant eye and finely tuned emotional radar. But he synthesizes those influences and has delivered something wholly original. The longer stories avoid easy laugh-out-loud punch lines in favor of quirky, offbeat twists that showcase his skill as a storyteller.

Accordingly, his more concise stories come across as brainy comedy bits, while his sustained tales covertly encompass deep emotional and psychological dimensions. Written by an author in complete control of his craft. Novak was smart and sexy, but funny, too!? Wow, screw that guy. I would just have spent every day at his feet instead of doing my job. Deliciously funny! He just keeps kicking short fiction in the rear, making it run ahead clutching its ass, and then he runs up and kicks it some more, and the result is one of the most aggressively, insanely awesome debuts in a while.

The hare gained weight, then lost weight; turned to religion, then another less specific religion. Everything helped a little bit, at first; but nothing really helped. After a while, the hare realized what the simplest part of him had known from the beginning: he was going to have to rematch the tortoise. The tortoise is focused full-time on inspiring a new generation with the lessons of dedication and persistence through his popular speaking tours and his charitable work with the Slow and Steady Foundation. Had everyone forgotten that the hare had taken six naps throughout the race!

A flat-roofed cube that had once housed a combination garage and convenience store now stood with its doors and windows boarded up. It slowed as it neared the abandoned station on the west, turning into the driveway and rolling around to the back of the building. Such was the mindset of Martello Paz. They must have come downhill from the aerodrome and in all likelihood were the pursuers I had avoided.

Сьюзан с облегчением вздохнула: - Туда, где твое подлинное призвание. Дэвид улыбнулся: - Да. Наверное, Испания напомнила мне о том, что по-настоящему важно. - Помогать вскрывать шифры? - Она чмокнула его в щеку.  - Как бы там ни было, ты поможешь мне с моей рукописью. - Рукописью. - Да.

Я просто не желаю играть вторую скрипку - тем более по отношению к подростку. - Моя жена вовсе не подросток, - возмутился Бринкерхофф.  - Она просто так себя ведет. Мидж посмотрела на него с удивлением. - Я вовсе не имела в виду твою жену.

Миллиард долларов.

 Извини, Сью, я пошутил. Сьюзан быстро проскочила мимо него и вышла из комнаты. Проходя вдоль стеклянной стены, она ощутила на себе сверлящий взгляд Хейла. Сьюзан пришлось сделать крюк, притворившись, что она направляется в туалет.

Беккер задумался. Что это за имя такое - Капля Росы. Он в последний раз взглянул на Клушара. - Капля Росы.

ТО: NDAKOTAARA. ANON. ORG FROM: ETDOSHISHA.

 Двести тридцать восемь? - воскликнула Сьюзан.  - Разве мы не знаем, что в хиросимской бомбе был другой изотоп урана. Все вокруг недоуменно переглянулись.

Скорее всего он проделал это дважды и каждый раз получал адрес Танкадо, а не Северной Дакоты. Элементарная ошибка, подумала Сьюзан, Стратмор, по-видимому, поменял местами поля информации, и Следопыт искал учетные данные совсем не того пользователя. Она завершила ввод данных и запустила Следопыта. Затем щелкнула по кнопке возврат.

 - Я знаю эту гостиницу. Она совсем. - Вот и прекрасно.

Выслушав подробности, он долго молчал. Дэвид, - сказал наконец Стратмор мрачным голосом, - обнаружение этого кольца - вопрос национальной безопасности. Я возлагаю эту задачу на .
