A funny and incisive collection of essays on oddities of life in the 1980s, from one of America's most cherished humorists First published in 1985, Not Exactly What I Had In Mind is Roy Blount Jr.'s smart and witty examination of the era's most glaring absurdities-from the ever-growing deficit under then-president Reagan to the Game Theory-like levels of strategy required to pack for a vacation. In "Testimonial, Head-on," Blount offers a loving ode to the virtues of full-bodied beer. In "Who You Gonna Call?" he enumerates the indefatigable charms of Bill Murray. And in "What You Personally Can Do about the Federal Deficit," he proposes a brilliantly simple and populist way to reduce government debt-and probably make your neighborhood post office very happy in the process. Powered by Roy Blount's irresistible sense of humor, Not Exactly What I Had in Mind revels in Reagan-era topics, but with a humor that is truly timeless.
