That history along with interviews conducted with more than 130 people connected to Kenney and the magazine - including Chevy Chase, John Hughes, P. J. O'Rourke, Tony Hendra, Sean Kelly, Chris Miller, and Bruce McCall - and behind-the-scenes stories about the making of Animal House and Caddyshack help to capture the nostalgia, humor, and popular culture that National Lampoon still inspires.

Excellent History of Golden Age in American Comedy
Loved the book, wish it went even longer. Lutkin’s narration was clean, well-read, but every time he said the word “parody” as “parity”, I wanted to punch a nun. A book on comedy, you’ve gotta be sure your reader can pronounce a few key words, eh?

Forever Young, Brilliant, and Tragic
I love Doug Kenney. I never met him, but this book and subsequent movie makes me admire and venerate him. I’ve gone from this book looking to learn and read more about National Lampoon, and hope to see more of this brilliant young man that I just read about here. A great look back on Kenney’s life and I recommend it to anyone.
