Format: Paperback
This book is super funny and a must read for everyone. I alternated between reading it aloud to my partner and trying to put it down so I wouldn't read it too quickly and then gave in and read it, and laughed, and read it, and laughed. Best not to try to read this while engaging in eating or drinking as you will laugh so hard you might choke. Even my 11 year old nephew was laughing as I read him bits.

Pitt's humour is at times subtle, and at others glaringly obviously. His ability to shape words and expressions is masterful. The stories will stick you with but you'll want to read them again, and share with friends.

It's often said that comedians are Canada's greatest export. For some reason, humorous Canucks prefer half-naked surfing at Big Sur to the existential joys of licking steel flagpoles in The Yukon. But the funny brain drain stops with Steve Pitt. He's determined to remain north of the 49th parallel if only because he's wanted for crimes against humanity. The world's loss is our gain as Pitt is clearly the finest humourist in Canada. Stephen Leacock would be proud.

This book is laugh until you snort, guffaw and hoot out loud funny. Do not start it unless you have time to read it cover to cover, and make sure that all hot beverages are resting safely on a hard surface.

I literally laughed out loud when reading those 21 humorous stories of My Life and Other Lies: Tales from the Writer's List by Steve Pitt. The book reminds me of the books of the humourist, Stephen Leecock. These are well-developed real life stories written in a rich and colourful language with vivid images. The reader can visualize different characters, young or old, male or female, and charming dogs. I enjoy many cute and funny details.

My favorites are "Jambon," "Gentle Men, the Queen," "Confessions of a Cherry Tree Ogre," and "A Day in a Chinese Kitchen." Weeks after finishing the read, I can still picture those who winkled their noses or dabbed their eyes with their napkins because of undigested garlic buttered snails working in the dog's belly; the waving claw of a lobster in the feather bonnet of the marching officer due to a daredevil's practical joke; the kids on the cherry trees who enjoyed the free fruit while unexpected thieves as old as their grandparents break in a house in the neighbourhood; and the precious drinking glass for the VIP, which was finally discovered over a daddy-long-legs spider under the dish sink in a Chinese kitchen where one could easily spot a thousand porcelain cups.

On some cloudy day, I'd like to read the book again, laugh off stress and anxiety, and gain some energy from these lovely stories.
