Which is a surprise, given that over half of them are dead. The barman says, 'this must be building up to a very simple punch-line, given the complexity of the set-up.' The barman's faith is touching but sadly misplaced. There is no punchline, just this book, A Good Bullet. Bullets are violent. Jokes are violent. Can either be used for good? What is good? A Good Bullet makes next to no effort to answer the last question because it's too hard. But it has a crack at asking why and how jokes commit violence. Why and how they amuse us with things that otherwise cause us anxiety and pain. Why and how sex, war, history, insecurity, faith, doubt and loss - all the good stuff - make people laugh. A Good Bullet is a broad-ranging, argumentative, silly, weirdly personal and fairly well-researched book from an exciting new voice.
