KIRKUS REVIEW

From the author's Cleveland newspaper column these excerpts are drawn. They range from mild dementia to gently inspirational, from droll comicalities to entertaining personal history and foibles. Feminine angles on small fry, growing children, fishing, prizefighting, the English language, Sunday Schools, sleep, food, sons about to be men in service, tales of hens and combs and colds and hoodoos, of difficult ages and black eyes: marginalia on feeding in wartime, on sceptics, critics, budgeting and dieting ...risible ramblings that invite constant pickup reading and sharing. Trivia that is rarely trite by virtue of fresh combination of words and thoughts and phrases.
