Chips Off the Old Benchley - Robert Benchley

Chips Off the Old Benchley

By Robert Benchley

  • Release Date: 1996-06-01
  • Genre: Humor


Benchley's humor is of another era: droll, understated, sometimes whimsical, always self-deprecating. His vocabulary is as broad as his choice of subject matter. He can find amusement (for the reader as well as himself) in such topics as getting change back at a ticket booth, the menace of buttered toast, dictating a letter, daylight savings time, business meetings, and a hotel menu from the year 1885.
