Getting Even - Woody Allen Getting Even makes Woody Allen look bad at times, for making it obvious that he has the perspective of a snotty intellectual; but the book is nevertheless hilarious. I learned of it when a friend in my college chess club showed me its story "The Gossage-Vardebedian Papers," in which two snotty intellectuals snipe back and forth at each other in a series of letters expediting a game of chess by mail; but some years later, I read the rest of the book, and found the story (whose title I forget) of a snotty intellectual inviting his Neanderthal-like groundskeeper Lars to a show at the theater even funnier than "The Gossage-Vardebedian Papers."
