In "Selections," Allen is little more than a parody of himself, a humorous performance of Woody Allen, as he is perceived by the public: as an absurd, hyperaware, worrying comedian. The idea that Allen is presented here as the private self is ironic considering that, clearly, this work is based on the impression he's given the world. The Without Feathers Study Pack contains

As a fan of Woody Allen movies I was excited to get my hands on his written work for the first time. Unfortunately his humor that I enjoyed on film did not transfer over to his written work. Through the entire book I caught myself chuckling once maybe twice at the most during his essay on Hitler's Barber. Otherwise I finished this book with a frown and a huge question mark looming over my head.

I do believe Woody was making an attempt to be funny in this book but he didn't come through for me. The "humor" was so dry it was brittle like a bread crumb that had been sitting out all night. Maybe old old schoolers will get it.

If you want a fun book to read that will make you laugh maybe try Larry David or David Brenner ?
Enjoyed reading many of Woody Allen's funny comments about his movies, and the movie stars he worked with. As a new Yorker I can relate to his superstitions, and his observations, of how couples. build themselves up, before tearing each other apart, when dating, often leading to marriage, and then the routine, starts again........
This is a first collection of Woody Allen's early articles that appeared in various New York publications in the 1960's. They are hit and miss, but mostly hits. A Woody Allen movie fan will recognize his parodies of intellectual pretension and his continuing obsessions with death, metaphysics, and religion.

Allen is a master of parody. The pseudo-intellectual silliness in the review of "The Metterling Lists" and the life of the Earl of Sandwich in "Yes, But Can the Steam Engine Do This?" are laugh-out-loud hysterical. "Conversations with Hemholz" is a lesser light about one of the alleged founders of psychoanalysis and the petty rivalries that tickle the funny bone. "Schmeed's Memoirs" about the top Nazi barber is a miss.

The "Hassidic Tales" are also top-rate Allen on display. The interpretations of rabbinical misfits by his "noted scholar" are wonderfully absurd justifications for equally absurd behavior. His "Death Knocks" is a weak first encounter with one of his most famous and laughable fears.

The other pieces in the collection from chess-by-mail to encounters with Hemingway, Gertrude Stein and Alice B. Toklas all have their moments. One can foresee the germination of "Bananas" in "Viva Vargas" and "Play it Again, Sam" in "Mr. Big." Curiously, in this volume sex takes a holiday since there are no pieces on his second greatest obsession next to death.

If you are an Allen fan this small volume is well worth buying at the price for which it is now selling. Since it is a collection of separate pieces you also have the luxury of reading each in any order at any time. I enjoyed reading early Woody, not only for the laughs but also for a view of the potential that would make him a legend later.

According to the aliens in Stardust Memories this is exactly what we need. This is the first collection of Woody's pieces for the New Yorker magazine, from 1966-1971. For me, this was the first truly inspired, laugh out loud funny collection of writings I had ever read. It was a revelation to me as to just how funny the written word could be. This book sets up the framework for the brilliantly funny Without Feathers and Side Effects. I recently re-read all three books and was astounded to discover just how timeless they are -- each book displaying Woody's tremendous talent as a writer and his unsurpassed imagination. This book led the way for every great comedic writer working today, from Steve Martin to Jon Stewart to Demetri Martin. I cannot recommend this book high enough.
If you are not sure what “Kine” are you will particularly love “The Scrolls”... and I’m sure the rest of this gem. Best summarized - this is a window into a comic genius mind - but maybe not for everyone and that’s ok. You either get it - or you don’t I’m afraid ... for those that do - you will love it
This book had me laughing out loud on the New York City subway. 'Nuff said.
This was fairly short but very entertaining read. It is the usually quick-witted and quercky early Woody Allen most people know and appreciate. It is a collection of short stories, unrelated in topic. He loves absurd references and off the wall comparisions and they make for a few laugh out loud moments. I recommend this book to anyone who likes off-the-wall writing and comedy with some intellectualism thrown in to the mix. This is early Allen, written before many of his biggest movies came out also.
