“Ernie is the Dave Barry of the West, which is a good thing. Buy this book!”
—Christopher Moore, NY Times bestselling author of A Dirty Job

How does humor writing happen? Spend a year with columnist Ernie Witham as he finds the humorous side of family, travel, work avoidance, and, sometimes, work—while always following the funny bone. Ernie spends every day thinking about humor, searching for humor, and writing humor. His writing life and personal life have melded into something his readers, family, and friends know as Ernie’s World. Now you can come along for the ride and see what a typical year in the life of a working writer is really like. From searching for that special last-possible-moment anniversary gift at the farmer’s market, to appearing in the movie Sideways, to helping out the alligator wrestler in  the Everglades, and trying to make a living out of it all without getting the dreaded day job, you’ll find Ernie’s World is a fun and funny place to visit.
