A hilarious and powerful collection of stories about millennials entering the abyss of middle age that will make you "laugh, then nod, then shed a tear" (Booklist)—from Thurber Prize-winning author Simon Rich, "one of the funniest writers in America" (NPR).

Simon Rich returns with a batch of can't-miss stories in which Super Mario turns forty and is forced to “take-a stock” of his life and how “messed up it’s-a become.” Goliath struggles to control the media narrative in the lead-up to his death match against David, a small, beloved child. And a long-discarded participation trophy reminisces about the glorious field day in 1993, when he wound up in the arms of a jubilant, asthmatic Simon Rich. 

High-stakes and heartfelt, Glory Days mourns the death of youthful innocence and hails the beginning of something approximating wisdom.

  • "Always hilarious"
    Washington Independent
  • "The travails of an aging Super Mario, the media battle between David and Goliath, and the workplace woes of the foul-mouthed Tooth Fairy are among humorist Rich’s latest concoctions....His follow-up to New Teeth is clever fun."
     
    Kirkus Reviews
  • “Despite the hilarity of these premises, Rich isn’t just a funnyman…. Readers will laugh, then nod, then shed a tear, finally doing all three at once. For a humorist, there is no higher praise.”
