Humorous essays by the Pulitzer Prize–winning “supreme satirist” (The Washington Post Book World).
This collection of more than a hundred anecdotes and essays from the legendary journalist, New York Times columnist, and author of the bestselling memoir Growing Up offers wise and sharply witty reflections on an extraordinary array of topics, ranging from youth, wealth, the media, and the joy of anger to the difference between “dinner” and “supper.”
“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
“When it comes to satire of a controlled but effervescent ferocity, nobody can touch Baker.” —The Washington Post Book World
