Jean Shepherd is America's favorite humorist. In THE FERRARI IN THE BEDROOM, a wry and affectionate look at America today, Jean Shepherd turns his powers of observation on the hangups and delusions of Americans in the 1970s. From his sardonic assessment of fads such as the current nostalgia craze ("Thinking that the old days were good is a terrible sickness. Everything was just as bad then as it is now.") to a modest proposal for the foundation of S.P.L.A.T. (The Society for the Prevention of the Leaving of Animal Turds), Jean Shepherd provides a generous measure of his special brand of wise and warm humor as an anti-dote for some of America's more ridiculous obsessions.
