written by Stephen Colbert, Paul Dinello, and Amy Sedaris photographs by Todd Oldham. Wigfield (officially known as "Proposed Super Fund Site 554") is an ephemeral hodgepodge of shanties, porno shops, strip clubs, and used auto parts yards. When a state politician, Representative William J. Farber, proposes the demolition of the Senator Alfonse T. Bulkwaller Memorial Dam (constructed in 1931), Wigfield is faced with destruction. The dam is located just up Fresh Springs Creek from this sleepy little, glow-in-the-dark, Podunk burg and it's the only thing keeping Wigfield from becoming a part of the creek.

Fantastic, little known book from Amy Sedaris, Stephen Colbert, and Paul Dinello. If you’re a fan of any of their work (Strangers with Candy, Exit 57, Colbert Report), you’ll love this. It’s read by all three of the authors, all of whom do several different voices. It was not intended to be descriptive of the word "book" but is rather a recorded spoken program in its own right and not necessarily an audio version of a book.

AMY SEDARIS, Paul Dinello, and Stephen Colbert met at Chicago's Second City and have been collaborators ever since. They have developed two separate series for Comedy Central: "Exit 57" and "Strangers with Candy". In addition to TV work, Dinello and Colbert are successful screenwriters.

Amy Sedaris, Paul Dinello, and Stephen Colbert met at Chicago's Second City and have been collaborators ever since. They have developed two separate series for Comedy Central: Exit 57 and Comedy Central's first live action series, Strangers with Candy. Amy Sedaris is one half of the "Talent Family" — the other half is David Sedaris — and together they have collaborated on eight plays, including the Obie Award-winning One Woman Shoe

The color of the prose is unsurprising, given the book's real authors: The Daily Show's Stephen Colbert and his former Exit 57/Strangers With Candy cohorts Paul Dinello and Amy Sedaris. To a degree, they feed each other's worst instincts. Wigfield has a self-satisfied, lazy air, as Hokes' anxiety about finishing the assignment (which leads to him writing long passages packed with synonyms) bleeds into the actual authors' weaknesses

Wigfield: The Can Do Town That Just May Not is a satirical novel by comedians Amy Sedaris, Paul Dinello, and Stephen Colbert, three of the four creators of the Comedy Central show Strangers with Candy. It was first published on May 7, 2003 by Hyperion Books. The book tells the story of a small town threatened by the impending destruction of a massive dam. The narrative is presented as a series of fictional interviews with the town's residents, with photos by American fashion designer Todd Oldham.

Another unusual find at my local library. I had read another book by Amy Sedaris and thought I would just see what else came up under her name and I found this little gem. Written by Amy Stephen Colbert and Paul Dinello is the story of a, "Can-Do Town That Just May Not". He breaks down near Wigfield and decides this Another unusual find at my local library.

Wigfield is a small bucolic hideaway, situated in front of a massive dam which is about to be torn down by the state government to restore the salmon run. Wigfield's only hope lies in the self-righteous, self-involved "journalist" Russell Hokes, who arrives hoping to capture the quiet dignity of the disappearing American Small Town. However, Wigfield is nether quiet nor dignified. As the date of destruction draws nearer, Hokes casts about desperate to find something about Wigfield worth documenting. WIGFIELD is a razor-sharp satire by three major talents.

This story is hilarious. And ultimately, a little too familiar now. Weird how they were able to describe symptoms of a town trying to save itself from a failing economy that was based on the towns main export. Even back then.
The CD I got was somewhat scratched, but, that shouldn't stop you from getting it. I was still able to rip everything to my usb drive. Where it would've skipped repeatedly, it only jumps a slight bit, but nothing is really lost in the story as it has only done this twice for the whole book.

This book was hilarious. I don't remember the last time I laughed this hard while reading a book. If you are a fan of the trio and watched Strangers with Candy, it is extremely easy to tell who is writing what parts of this book. The humor is the same as their show. The plot is ridiculous and hilarious. It's a really fast read and definitely worth it if you are a Sedaris, Dinello, or Colbert fan.
JUST DO IT
This is probably tied for the funniest book I've ever read along with John Hodgman's "The Areas of my Expertise." I borrowed it from a friend years ago and remembered it fondly, so recently I purchased it for myself and it still holds up. I definitely recommend it.

I read a decent amount of reviews before purchasing this book, and half of them were bad. I was quite hesitant to get Wigfield because of those reviews (and cuz of the cover). However, I love the trio that wrote it, so I figured I'd check it out. I'm so glad I did. This is one of the funniest books I've ever read. It's HUGELY politically incorrect, so if you're easily offended, I wouldn't recommend this book to you, but it's hilarious. Very funny stuff, very fun to read, and great if you're looking for something entertaining. This is definitely a great book worth checking out if you like the kind of humor that defines Amy Sedaris, Paul Dinello, and Stephen Colbert.

This book is really funny..of course I'm a little biased I guess because I ADORE Stephen Cobert,Amy Sedaris and Paul Dinello.They were all in the cast of Strangers With Candy,a genius comedy sitcom. I have the whole series box dvd set & love it to pieces!The book uses a lot of the same type 'inside joke sarcasm' humor that Stephen uses on his show The Cobert Report.If you get & appreciate his humor,you'll love this book. I love it! Crazy funny pictures too! LOL!
Mr.jeka
If you enjoy The Cobert Report with Steven Cobert, formerly of The Daily Show, you will surely enjoy his reading of this wigged-out novel. I love his malaprops, nonsequitors, puns, and insane logic. Jokes come in threes. The set up, the set up, and the twisted jab to the funny bone. Perhaps, the people who don't like this book need to have it read to them like a bedtime story. Then they would hear (out loud) the marvelously witty word play. They could listen and hear the word paintings and crazy voices of the Wigfield sheriffs and mayors and strippers - there are at least three of each for reasons made clear in the book. So, buy the cd version and play it while you drive (try not to run off the road laughing) and then when you read the book you won't have to move your lips to hear it. As for me, I'm going to buy the book to see the funny photographs. Pure genius marketing strategy if you ask me: If you can't read silently and understand the humor you have to buy the cd version, and then after you've listened to the cd you have to buy the book version to see if the Wigfield populace can possibly look as stupid as they sound.

I love this book! Laugh out loud funny. A very dry humor though. Easily lost on some people. I don't think my wife got it.
Grade A material--the laughs per line ratio is very, very high. Ideal for competitive speech/forensics. Not at all political, if that matters to you--equally funny regardless of your position on the ideological spectrum.
