Let's Pretend This Never Happened: (A Mostly True Memoir) by Jenny Lawson
BIOGRAPHY 921 LAWSON
Jenny Lawson realized that the most mortifying moments of our lives—the ones we’d like to pretend never happened—are in fact the ones that define us. 
Girl Named Zippy, A: Growing Up Small in Mooreland Indiana by Haven Kimmel
BIOGRAPHY KIMMEL
In this witty and lovingly told memoir, Kimmel takes readers back to a time when small-town America was caught in the amber of the innocent postwar period—people helped their neighbors, went to church on Sunday, and kept barnyard animals in their backyards.
Hyperbole and a Half: Unfortunate Situations, Flawed Coping Mechanisms, Mayhem, and Other Things That Happened by Allie Brosh
HUMOR GRAPHIC BRO
Brosh’s debut marks the launch of a major new American humorist who will surely make even the biggest scrooge or snob laugh. We dare you not to.
A Confederacy of Dunces: A Novel by John Kennedy Toole
TOOLE
John Kennedy Toole's hero, one Ignatius J. Reilly, is huge, obese, fractious, fastidious, a latter-day Gargantua, a Don Quixote of the French Quarter. His story bursts with wholly original characters, denizens of New Orleans' lower depths, incredibly true-to-life dialogue, and the zaniest series of high and low comic adventure.
Catch-22 by Joseph Heller
CLASSIC HELLER
Set in Italy during World War II, this is the story of the incomparable, malingering bombardier, Yossarian, a hero who is furious because thousands of people he has never met are trying to kill him. But his real problem is not the enemy—it is his own army, which keeps increasing the number of missions the men must fly to complete their service.
Me Talk Pretty One Day by David Sedaris
HUMOR SED
David Sedaris' move to Paris from New York inspired these hilarious pieces, including the title essay, about his attempts to learn French from a sadistic teacher who declares that "every day spent with you is like having a caesarean section."
Tina Fey: Bossypants by Tina Fey
HUMOR 792.7028 FEY
Tina Fey was just a young girl with a dream: a recurring stress dream that she was being chased through a local airport by her middle-school gym teacher. She also had a dream that one day she would be a comedian on TV.
One More Thing: Stories and Other Stories by B. J. Novak
NOVAK
B.J. Novak's One More Thing: Stories and Other Stories is an endlessly entertaining, surprisingly sensitive, and startlingly original debut collection that signals the arrival of a welcome new voice in American fiction.
Yes Please by Amy Poehler
BIOGRAPHY POEHLER
Poehler offers up a big juicy stew of personal stories, funny bits on sex and love and friendship and parenthood and real life advice (some useful, some not so much), like when to be funny and when to be serious.
Where'd You Go, Bernadette: A Novel by Maria Semple
SEMPLE
A compulsively readable and touching novel about misplaced genius and a mother and daughter's role in an absurd world.
Seriously, I'm Kidding by Ellen DeGeneres
HUMOR 792.7028 DEG
Degeneres' first book in eight years, brings us up to date about the life of a kindhearted woman who bowed out of American Idol because she didn't want to be mean. Lively; hilarious; often sweetly poignant.
Confessions of a Domestic Failure by Bunmi Laditan
LADITAN
With her razor-sharp wit and knack for finding the funny in everything, Bunmi Laditan creates a character both flawed and lovable while hilariously lambasting the societal pressures placed upon every new mother. At its heart, Ashley's story reminds moms that there's no way to be perfect, but many ways to be great. 
Less (Winner of the Pulitzer Prize): A Novel by Andrew Sean Greer
GREER
A scintillating satire of the American abroad, a rumination on time and the human heart, a bittersweet romance of chances lost,  Less shows a writer at the peak of his talents raising the curtain on our shared human comedy.
No One Can Pronounce My Name: A Novel by Rakesh Satyal
SATYAL
A distinctive, funny, and insightful look into the lives of people who must reconcile the strictures of their culture and traditions with their own dreams and desires.
Would Everybody Please Stop?: Reflections on Life and Other Bad Ideas by Jenny Allen
LITERATURE LITCOLL ALL
Jenny Allen asks the tough questions: Why do people say “It is what it is”? What’s the point of fat-free half-and-half? Why don’t the women detectives on TV carry purses, and where are we supposed to think they keep all their stuff? And haven’t we heard enough about memes?
