Heard The One About The Director And His Parodies?

"Nothing, in Woody-world, appears just once. Like 'Broadway' Danny Rose keeping his roster of old-time sub-celebrity talent employed, Allen writes as if he'd taken a pledge to keep his aged roster of gags, cerebral setups, Hadassah-esque names and nonstop Nazi, delicatessen and pants-business references in circulation. It's a postwar world preserved in kosher amber, from which the author wrings reliable laughter and insight."

- Jerry Stahl reviews Woody Allen's new collection, Mere Anarchy.
