Here's what you say about us...

Whimsy (as he is often called) is much more than a mere pen name, for he walks among us as a living embodiment of charm. He has earned a loyal following through his published articles, readings and public appearances, and has packed cafes, bookstores, and universities with his 'You Lack My Refinement' tour, illuminating the Former Colonies with the Light of Whimsy. When not defending the Flower of Civilization against bruised petals, he lives the life of a country squire in the leafy, rural hamlet of New Egypt, New Jersey. Rest assured, gentle reader: Whimsy loves you all.

'Written in something approximating the McSweeney's style, this collection of essays, charts, and assorted silliness is deeply amusing'
USA Today

'Lord Whimsy is a splendid raconteur and a canny quillsman … we are confident that you will find this dandy's manicured musings a bracing tonic against the enervating drudgery of the modern world'
