Nose Hairs Gone Wild

by Scott Saalman

“I taught Scott Saalman everything I know. Tragically this turned out to be very little. But you should buy this book anyway,” writes Pulitzer Prize-winning humorist Dave Barry. Inspired by syndicated humorists like Barry and Erma Bombeck, Scott Saalman has been writing and publishing humor columns for 20-some years. Nose Hairs Gone Wild is a collection of his best work, with topics ranging from his fear of flying, to constructing his first baby crib, to dealing with a dachshund from hell, to making sense out of his travels in Asia, Italy and Vegas, to being marred for life when witnessing his mom lose her bikini top on a crowded beach, to dealing with middle-aged dilemmas like nose hairs that have permanently gone wild.
“Nose Hairs Gone Wild reads like a memoir, at once hilarious and poignant. From beginning to end, this collection of essays about seemingly random topics is funny, fascinating, but never flip. This book is for anyone who can read! Scott can do what all the funny guys do — he finds humor in the everyday, but Scott one-ups the rest of them. He finds meaning too,” writes novelist Margaret McMullan, author of several acclaimed books (Sources of Light) and the Melvin M. Peterson Endowed Chair in Literature and Writing at the University of Evansville. Nose Hairs Gone Wild contains 31 of Saalman’s finest essays. Inspired by syndicated humorists like Dave Barry and Erma Bombeck, Saalman has been writing and publishing humor columns for 20-some years. “I taught Scott Saalman everything I know. Tragically this turned out to be very little. But you should buy this book anyway,” writes Pulitzer Prize-winner Dave Barry. Laughs are guaranteed when reading his essays with titles like Bait and Switch, Full Court Mess, Lullalies and Topless Mother. Warning: not for the humor impaired.
