Sometimes The Dedication Page Is the Best Part Of The Book (44 Pics)

A few years back, I wrote a humor book and dedicated it to my parents. A heartfelt, sincere thank you to them for their support. But then, I saw what other people wrote on their dedication pages, and I’m afraid I missed my shot at greatness. Even people in academia have written funnier dedication pages than I did. Can you believe it? The nerds have outdone me again.

Thankfully, though, I have these hilarious inscriptions from authors who took the time to write something good. Move over, Dave Eggers! There’s a new group of clever people writing acknowledgments. (Dave Eggers wrote a really funny book that even toyed with the copyright page. Look into it.).


If you pick up even one book this year, remember to check for funny blurbs and dedication pages. There might be something great in there that’s better than the book itself.

Here are the funniest dedication pages ever written in a book:


1. My personal favorite from Samantha Irby’s ‘Wow No Thank You
