These books are funny because they’re true.
I couldn’t help but laugh out loud while reading through Christian Lander’s observant accounts of his race and its various stereotypes. This guy hits the mark on several levels when it comes to the quirky and ironic generalizations of what white people are into. Landers’ most recent title, Whiter Shades of Pale, continues the clever perceptions of Stuff White People Like, but takes it to a regional level, “from Seattle’s sweaters to Maine’s microbrews.”
To read an excerpt (which I would if I were you), click here. Or, check out the Stuff White People Like blog, to read all about why white people are so drawn to things like Moleskine notebooks, indie music, coffee, Farmer’s Markets, pea coats, sweaters, scarves, and the Toyota Prius.
