"A Year on Facebook" by Peter Carlaftes (184 pages, Three Rooms Press, 2010) is a comical trajectory through the chronological events of the past year via daily updates from the insightful and irreverent pontiff of pun: Peter Carlaftes. Call it Groucho Marx meets Kurt Vonnegut and they become BFFs in this irreverent, hilarious book. In this day of the tell-all journal, Carlaftes’s book, exposing the foibles of our seemingly civilized sensibility, reveals both how — and like — it is. Iconic from conception, "A Year on Facebook" is a one-of-a-kind literary experience that raises the bar for the idealist in us all. As one commentator summed up, "I wonder if you know, Peter, how many times you make me laugh out loud with your status updates. Guess it doesn’t matter. Just keep me laughing, please. :)"
