Shock-jock radio host Howard Stern (Private Parts) shares his own offbeat, outrageous views and offensive observations on life, the world, modern American society—and more—in the massive #1 New York Times bestseller Miss America.
Now with more than forty pictures of naked breasts, Howard Stern's Miss America offers remarkable revelations about:
Howard's secret meeting with Michael Jackson!
The Stern family pact with Adolf Hitler!
Howard's never-before-revealed mental illness!
With chapters on Howard's ongoing battle with the FCC and his legendary campaign for governor of the state of New York, Miss America covers some of the greatest news stories of recent history—from the Atlantic City penis sandwich to an exclusive with Jackie O's embalming-fluid delivery boy and of course, Philadelphia's own fecal-obsessed Uncle Ed.
What Howard does in Miss America that he did not in Private Parts, is take his time to think. In his second novel he does not seem in such a mad rush to blurt out every intimate detail of his existence and of those around him. This time we discover a slightly older and more thoughtful Howard Stern. Don't get me wrong he has not seen any error in his ways, nor does he intend to change them. But he does stop to consider why and it makes the whole reading experience far more enjoyable.
Howard has still not lost his rapier wit and it is still delivered with a sledgehammer. Nor has he lost his love of naked females and that is sort of reassuring, for if he were to change at this point, we would know he was a phoney.
In Miss America Howard does go back over some old territory, but this time gives us another perspective. For Example we see the World of Howard, from Robin's eyes and it is an eye opener. Howard also has fun exploring and analysing his friendship with Fred Norris and this all makes for great reading. But the fun really begins when he gives us full chapter and verse on how he totally destroys a rival DJ and it is then that book becomes (to use a cliché) a real page turner.
Miss America is not as funny as Private parts, but a more thoughtful and enjoyable read as once again we are get another look at the world through Howard's small and very dark glasses.
Bottom line, if a book can keep me coming back for more after 7 years, you know it's brilliant.
Funniest book ever. Period.
