Pure Drivel by Steve Martin
I love Steve Martin. I used to secretly listen to Get Small and Wild and Crazy Guy in 6th grade social studies. I think I own all his albums on vinyl. I’ve seen all his movies, except maybe Pennies from Heaven. I’ve read his books. In particular I’ve listened to his book Born Standing Up four times, and I’ll probably listen to it again this summer. Pure Drivel, unfortunately, didn’t do much for me. There were some pieces here that I read out loud to my family that resulted in real laughs, especially “Dear Amanda,” and “Sledgehammer.” But most of it was just ok. I can’t resist. Pure Drivel: mostly drivel. Sorry.
