Description

Read Online Why We Suck Book. The New York Times bestseller

One of America’s most original and biting comic satirists, Denis Leary takes on all the poseurs, politicians, and pop culture icons who have sucked in public for far too long. Sparing no one, Leary zeroes in on the ridiculous wherever he finds it—his Irish Catholic upbringing, the folly of celebrity, the pressures of family life, and the great hypocrisy of politics—with the same bright, savage, and profane insight he brought to his critically acclaimed one-man shows No Cure for CancerLock ’n Load.

Proudly Irish-American, defiantly working class, with a reserve of compassion for the underdog and the overlooked, Leary delivers blistering diatribes that are both penetrating social commentary with no holds barred and laugh-out-loud funny. As always, Leary’s impassioned comic perspective in Why We Suck is right on target.

Leary is the star and co-creator of the Emmy-nominated television show Rescue Me

    I got this a couple of days ago and it has surpassed my expectations of it. This is a very funny book, that is very well written, and really has quite a bit of truth in it. I had to stop reading it in class because I was cracking up so much.
  • Great book
