HOBNOB by B. Wilson Christopher


Email this review


Splitting hobnob into two brothers, Hob and Nob, causing them to quarrel over a common-property cow, then bringing them together again via a canny old man, dramatizes the meaning of the word but it's hardly original drama: the point is that the corn of Hob and the honey of Nob are needed to make muffins -- i.e. interdependence. What's in a word is not necessarily a story: this time it's an old recipe.
