FROM THIS EPISODE

Mitch Sisskind's Do Not Be a Gentleman When You Say Goodnight (The Song Cave) is a distillation of nearly fifty years of brilliant comic writing.  Sisskind explains how ordinary life and everyday language – language as spoken by members of his family discussing things like weather or the traffic – are used to create some of the funniest prose and poetry in contemporary American writing.
