“Russell Baker is the Alka-Seltzer of the American experience… the most effective comic relief available for the agonizing absurdities we encounter every day.”—Houston Chronicle

“Baker is the supreme satirist of this half century… When it comes to satire of a controlled but effervescent ferocity, nobody can touch Baker.” —Washington Post Book World

From one of America's greatest humorists comes this collection of more than a hundred anecdotes and essays. Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, and author of the bestselling memoir, GROWING UP, Russell Baker offers humorous reflections on his youth, being rich, the joy of anger, male weepie films and whatever happened to statuesque females.

A collection of short funny pieces by Russell Baker, most of which appeared in his "Observer" column in the New York Times. They range over many subjects, many of which reflect the foibles of current day America. Great fun to read, and reread.read more
