This is a book to be read for sheer pleasure: a collection of the witty, the informal, and the entertaining, selected from the pages of Harper’s Magazine. The single characteristic shared by the wide variety of stories and articles is that each is fresh, funny, and enormously readable. The selections range in time from Mark Twain to Jean Kerr, and cover such diverse subjects as Hedda Hopper’s TV spectacular, a baby seal that doesn’t know how to swim, and the little kingdom of Lundy off the British coast… This anthology brings you old favorites and new delights to be read, shared, and read again.
