Sinopse – Without Feathers – Woody Allen

The title of Woody Allen’s 2nd collection of New Yorker-style sprint humor is a sly comment on Emily Dickinson’s famous quote, "Hope is the thing with feathers." Without Feathers delivers his hopeless schlub persona–you remember, what he used to be before he was either a lecher or an auteur, depending on your politics. In addition to being as funny as anything published since, to read it is to return to a simpler time, when being a fan of his work was common, not controversial. Tho each piece is funny, two of them are particularly notable examples of Allen’s distinctive style (borrowed in large part from S.J. Perelman by way of the Borscht Belt, but distinctive, nevertheless)–"The Whore of Mensa" & "If the Impressionists Had Been Dentists." Here’s an excerpt from the latter: ‘Mrs. Sol Schwimmer is suing me because I made her bridge as I felt it & not to fit her ridiculous mouth! That’s right! I can’t work to order like a common tradesman! I decided her bridge should be enormous & billowing, with wild, explosive teeth flaring up in every direction like fire! Now she is upset because it won’t fit in her mouth! She is so bourgeois & stupid, I want to smash her! I tried forcing the false plate in but it sticks out like a star burst chandelier.’
