Dispatches from the front lines of American culture by the great humorist

Ian Frazier, the two-time winner of the Thurber Prize for American Humor, has gathered his insights on the most urgent issues of today in Cranial Fracking. From musings on climate change (what did Al Gore say at his colloquium on the rising temperatures in Hell?) to the state of culture (what do you do when you’re afflicted with Loss of Funding?) to Texas (what should we do with Texas?), he has all the answers. Or, at the very least, a lot of questions.

Frazier is endlessly curious and perpetually delighted, and seeing the absurdity of the world through his eyes is irresistible. Once more, the author of Hogs Wild and Travels in Siberia has struck oil.

Praise For…

"[Cranial Fracking] secures Ian Frazier's status as a shrewd social commentator masquerading as a great wit."—Nell Beram, Shelf Awareness

"When [Frazier] is critiquing artificial intelligence or advocating for mummies in what is otherwise a golden age of zombies, the theater of the absurd is taken to brave new worlds." —Kirkus Reviews
