Read full description of the books Le supplice des week-ends:

Il faut lire ce recueil avec précaution, tout au moins "à dose homéopathique". Membre du célèbre Round Table de l'hôtel Algonquin, qui réunissait les esprits les plus brillants de l'époque (Dorothy Parker, lames Thurber entre autres), Robert Benchley se montre ici digne de ses pairs et peut-être même leur maître à tous dans le registre du nonsense où il déploie une onsolence glacée ainsi qu'un sens du coq-à-l'âne et de la logique (souvent inversée) qui ont peu d'équivalents dans la littérature universelle. Benchley, on adore ou on déteste, impossible en revanche de rester indifférent à cette sorte de philosophie de la vie qui nous prend à contre-pied. Avec modération? C'est à voir: Benchley, c'est aussi un antidote contre tous les supplices de la vie quotidienne.
