Description - Zombie Spaceship Wasteland by Patton Oswalt

A hilarious memoir from one of the most creative, insightful, and hysterical voices on the entertainment scene today. Best known for his roles in the films Big Fan and Ratatouille , as well as the television hit The King of Queens , Patton has been amusing audiences for decades. Now, with Zombie Spaceship Wasteland , he offers a fascinating look into his most unusual and loveable mind. Oswalt combines memoir with uproarious humor, from his childhood obsessions with Dungeons and Dragons, Edgar Allan Poe, and gifts from Grandma that had to be explained to a pitch-perfect depiction of an adolescence spent reading everyone from Beverly Cleary to Anthony Burgess. He remembers his teen summers spent working in a movie Cineplex and his early years doing standup. Listeners are also treated to several graphic short stories and the book's centerpiece, which posits that before all young creative minds have anything to write about, they will all hone in on one of three storylines: zombies, spaceships, or wastelands. Oswalt chose wastelands, and ever since he has been mining our society's wasteland for perversion and excess, pop culture and fatty foods, indie rock and single malt scotch. Zombie Spaceship Wasteland is an inventive account of the evolution of Patton Oswalt's wildly insightful worldview, sure to delight his legion of fans and lure many new admirers to his very entertaining "wasteland."
