Publisher Description

The New York Times bestseller

One of America’s most original and biting comic satirists, Denis Leary takes on all the poseurs, politicians, and pop culture icons who have sucked in public for far too long. Sparing no one, Leary zeroes in on the ridiculous wherever he finds it—his Irish Catholic upbringing, the folly of celebrity, the pressures of family life, and the great hypocrisy of politics—with the same bright, savage, and profane insight he brought to his critically acclaimed one-man shows No Cure for CancerLock ’n Load.

Proudly Irish-American, defiantly working class, with a reserve of compassion for the underdog and the overlooked, Leary delivers blistering diatribes that are both penetrating social commentary with no holds barred and laugh-out-loud funny. As always, Leary’s impassioned comic perspective in Why We Suck is right on target.

Leary is the star and co-creator of the Emmy-nominated television show Rescue Me

Denis Leary at his best

If you are a fan of Leary's then you'll love this book. It's insightful and irreverent. Politically incorrect, and surprisingly conservative. You'll laugh and you'll cry (ok, you won't cry). Enjoy!
